Public invited to learn about WestConnect study

Open house meetings to take place in Golden, Arvada, Littleton

Posted

Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the WestConnect Coalition are hosting three public meetings to inform people about the outcomes of a recent Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study that stretches roughly from Littleton to Boulder.

Each meeting will have an open house from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. with a brief presentation at 5:15 p.m. The public may attend any of the following meetings:

Jan. 16 in the Clear Creek and Coal Creek Rooms at the Golden Community Center, 1470 10th St. in Golden.

Jan. 24 in the gymnasium at Three Creeks Elementary School, 19486 W. 94th Ave. in Arvada.

Jan. 25 in the Bradford Room at the Ken Caryl Ranch House, 7676 S. Continental Divide Road in Littleton.

The PEL study took place along C-470 between Kipling Street and Interstate 70, and along the US 6/CO 93 corridor between Golden and Boulder. The purpose was to evaluate and develop short-term and long-term transportation alternatives and identify proposed improvements, which included options to reduce congestion, improve operational performance and safety and address future transportation needs.

Draft study recommendations and evaluation of these improvements will be presented at all of the meetings. Attendees will have opportunities to discuss the study with project team members and provide feedback. Public input is an important component of this study, and CDOT will consider the comments provided as the recommended improvements for the corridor are refined.

Reasonable accommodations for those with disabilities who wish to participate in the meetings can be arranged upon request. Contact Leah Langerman at 720-225-4651 or llangerman@deainc.com.

Beginning Jan. 16, an online version of the meetings will be available. It will include four videos that present the public meeting graphic displays.
