CO 119 Corridor Project July 2021 Updates: Coffman Street Busway; CO 119 & Hover

Coffman Street Busway Project

The City of Longmont just finished block-by-block outreach efforts along the Coffman Street Busway corridor.

The Coffman Street Busway project seeks to make Coffman Street, from 1st Avenue to 9th Avenue, a multimodal corridor to support residents, businesses, visitors, bikes and pedestrians, commuters, the environment and the City.

Meetings were held with property and business owners from 1st Avenue to 9th Avenue along the Coffman corridor, and helped the project team gain insight about elements of the busway, bikeway and pedestrian improvements.

Information gathered from input included critical improvements as well as insight about keeping the historic street character of the corridor intact through the design process.

After additional discussions with the external partners, the project team will have a preferred alternative set in the next month. An open house will be scheduled later this summer to help launch the preliminary design to the public.

SH 119 & Hover

The City of Longmont, along with Commuting Solutions and regional partners, submitted a RAISE Grant.

The RAISE Grant is a U.S. Department of Transportation funded grant, formerly known as a BUILD Grant, which if funded will help improve mobility along the SH 119 corridor at the SH 119 and Hover Street intersection.

The intersection at SH 119 and Hover Street in Longmont accommodates more of the traveling public than any of the other intersections along the SH 119 corridor between Longmont and Boulder. This intersection has long been known for its precarious, hairpin-like turn movements, poor transit and pedestrian and bicycle access.
