June 2022 Community Meeting

Virtual Community Meeting - June 27, 2022

On June 27, 2022, CDOT, RTD, and Boulder County held a virtual community meeting to show preliminary design plans for the CO 119 Safety and Mobility Improvements Project and CO 119 Bikeway Design Project.

Project Updates Following Community Meeting

During the community meeting comment period, comments were submitted, among others, about access changes at Airport/Ogallala Roads. In response to this input, members of the CO 119 Safety and Mobility Improvements Project Team visited the corridor in August 2022 to complete new traffic observations. Based upon community input and the findings from the field visit, CDOT has changed the right-in/right-out access plan at Ogallala Road. Now, the through lane from Ogallala Road to northbound Airport Road will be preserved. CDOT also plans to add new signage and extend the left turn lane on SB CO 119 at 83rd Street to make this left turn movement safer.

Additionally, due to community input gathered through the preliminary design process, RTD entered discussions with the City of Boulder and the City of Longmont regarding potential additional BRT stops. As a result of these discussions, stops have been added on southbound CO 119 at 47th Street and Folsom Street and Canyon Boulevard in Boulder. Within Longmont, stops have been added at Main Street and Mountain View, as well as Hover Street and 3rd Avenue. RTD continues to be in conversation with local agency stakeholders about proposed stop locations.

Ebikes on the CO 119 Commuter Bikeway

At the community meeting, the project team indicated that only class 1 and 2 ebikes would be allowed on the CO 119 Community Bikeway. Since that time, we have determined that class 1, 2, and class 3 ebikes will be permitted. The bikeway will be built within the CDOT right-of-way, and per State law Class 1, 2, and 3 e-bikes are permitted on bike paths within a street or highway.
