US 287 Corridor Project September 2021 Update: BRT Feasibility Study

The US 287 Bus Rapid Transit Feasibility Study is coming to its conclusion with the modeling results and Stations Area Toolkit completed.

The Northwest Area Mobility Study (NAMS) identified the US 287 corridor as a candidate to implement Bus Rapid Transit and found that US 287 had the highest projected ridership.

The Stakeholder Working Group, consisting of technical staff from municipal and agency partners, met Sept. 14. A public meeting will be scheduled this fall for the public to provide input.

Input provided from the meeting, as well as from elected officials, will be put into a report, which will then be provided to the community.

Boulder County is working to build a coalition between Broomfield and Fort Collins and working with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to accept federal funding to begin working on the next phase of planning the corridor: Vision Zero Safety and Multimodal Mobility.
