Foothills Parkway (Diagonal Highway to Valmont Road) Operational Improvements
This road construction project was completed in 2015 and provided a third southbound lane on Foothills Parkway from the Diagonal Highway on-ramp through Valmont Road, reducing congestion and improving safety. The project also installed bike racks and a bench at the Valmont Road/Foothills Parkway bus stop and incorporated raised pedestrian crossings at the northwest and southwest corners of the Valmont Road intersection.

The project had a budget of $750,000 jointly funded by:
- $600,000 from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA);
- $75,000 from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT); and
- $75,000 from the City of Boulder.
This project is part of the regional 2012 - 2017 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
An open-house meeting was held on Oct. 11, 2012 to provide more information about the project plans and other upcoming improvements in northeast Boulder.
