April 2014 - The Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the New Pueblo Freeway details the Preferred Alternative and project phasing for the reconfiguration and redesign of I-25 through Pueblo. The purpose of the Record of Decision (ROD) is to document the FHWA’s decision on the New Pueblo Freeway Project. Keywords: Studies, Interstates

I-25 and Arapahoe Road/SH 88 Interchange Environmental Assessment & FONSI

August 2012 - This Environmental Assessment (EA) was prepared under requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to determine if the Action Alternative could have significant impacts on the human environment. February 2013 - This Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was prepared under requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Also included, Final System Level Feasibility Study from June 2008. Keywords: Studies, Interstates

I-70 Reversible (Zipper) Lane Study Phase II

December 2012 - This Phase II I-70 Reversible Lane Feasibility Study report provides information on the benefits and risks associated with Reversible Lane implementation along the I-70 Mountain Corridor. This document builds on the information provided in the Phase I analysis and discusses the trade-offs that must be considered prior to implementation. Keywords: Studies, Interstates, zipper lanes, reversible lanes

CO 7 Cherryvale to 75th Street EA & FONSI

Environmental Assessment (EA) May 2008 - This Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluates the environmental, social, and economic impact of the proposed action for State Highway (SH) 7 between Cherryvale Road and 75th Street (approximately 2.2 miles). For this study, the lead federal agency is the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is the applicant. This EA evaluates the impacts of the Preferred Alternative. This is compared against the No-Action Alternative. Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) October 2008 - SH 7 is a principal east-west arterial roadway serving as a commuter and intra-regional facility (see Figure 1-1 and Figure 1-2). To comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), an Environmental Assessment (EA) was conducted to evaluate the reasonable alternatives that address the purpose and need for the project and assesses the impacts of implementing the proposed improvements. Two alternatives, the No-Action Alternative and the Preferred Alternative (build alternative) were evaluated in the EA. The build alternative was identified as the Preferred Alternative.

US 34, US 287 to Larimer County Rd. 3 EA and FONSI

April 2007 - Environmental Assessment (EA) - The purpose of the proposed project is to provide an improved transportation facility between US 287 and LCR 3 that would meet the following needs: Improve current and future traffic mobility, Improve transportation safety, and Accommodate 2030 travel demand. July 2007 - Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) - This project encompasses approximately 6 miles of US 34 (also known as Eisenhower Boulevard) in Loveland, Colorado. The project corridor extends between a western terminus at US 287 (North Lincoln Avenue and North Cleveland Avenue one-way pair) and an eastern terminus of Larimer County Road 3 (LCR 3), 1.5 miles east of the I-25 interchange.

CO 392 Environmental Overview Study (EOS)

The CO 392 Environmental Overview Study identified a transportation solution supported by local and regional planning partners that identifies right of way, which must be preserved for improvements. This plan will be used by planners to set aside right of way as development occurs along the corridor. The CO 392 EOS study limits are from CO 287 to the west to Weld County Road (WCR) 23 to the east. Keywords: Studies, State Highways, Construction Complete

US 34 Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study

The project will provide for a Planning and Environmental Linkages Study on US 34 from Glade Road west of Loveland to CR 49 east of Greeley. Over the last 10 – 15 years, various studies have been performed throughout this corridor, including an Access Control Plan along US 34 from CR 3 to US 85, an Environmental Assessment along US 34 in Loveland from US 287 east to CR 3 along with other studies. One of the goals of this project is to update and consolidate these studies. \\ Keywords: Studies, US Highways

I-76 and Bridge Street Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI)

The proposed I-76 and Bridge Street Interchange Project is located in Brighton, Colorado, in Adams County. The City of Brighton proposes to construct an interchange at I-76 and Bridge Street on the eastern side of the city. The proposed interchange would provide an opportunity to increase regional east-west connectivity across State Highway 7. This regional connectivity will become increasingly important with future population growth and increased travel demand. Keywords: Studies, Interstates
