US 287 Corridor Project – February 2021 Update

US 287 Corridor Project MapBoulder County is currently working with stakeholders, regional partners, and members of the public, to conduct a multi-phased re-envisioning process.

The first phase of the study closely examines Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) implementation on the US 287 corridor between Longmont and Broomfield to address the growing congestion and travel demand in the area.

The study will recommend the type and location of capital investments that will enhance transit travel times on US 287 by conducting an analysis that will assess traffic patterns, current transit operations and infrastructure, vehicle queue lengths, opportunities for intersection treatments and Station Area Toolkits.

The study will also identify potential funding sources and provide the framework for the next steps for the implementation of the BRT along US 287.

In December, Boulder County created and distributed a survey to the public. Results will be shared soon!
