Transportation Master Plan

On February 23, 2021, the Board of Trustees approved Resolution 21-R-13 to adopt the Transportation Master Plan. The Transportation Master Plan details the assessment of existing conditions, vision setting with the public, and plan development.

Frederick is a family-friendly community with an ideal location north of the Denver metropolitan area in the Carbon Valley area. Residents enjoy a small-town feel, a historic downtown, and hundreds of acres of parks and preserved open space. The Town is proud of its heritage, open space, and the quality of life it provides.

The Town is well served by its location along the Interstate (I)-25 corridor, which provides a north-south route along Colorado's Front Range. State Highways (SH) 119 and 52 borders Frederick to the north and south, respectively, and provide east-west routes and quick access to I-25. 

With its proximity and accessibility to the Denver area and other cities to the west and the north, a significant percentage of Frederick residents commute to their jobs outside the community. 

In recent years, its prime location combined with the appeal of Frederick's quality of life has resulted in a high rate of population growth and land development. Industrial, commercial, and residential neighborhoods are all expanding, and formerly rural land uses are changing. As a result, the demands on the Town's transportation infrastructure are increasing. 

This inaugural Town of Frederick Transportation Master Plan(TMP) identifies the Town's existing transportation network's strengths and challenges and, through a public discussion, sets the vision for the next 10 to 20 years. This TMP establishes a framework to guide the Town's transportation-related decisions by documenting community goals and a range of investment strategies adaptable to future funding.

As Frederick developed its initial TMP, it was important to understand and evaluate the following:

  • How do people move about between their daily activities, such as work, school, recreation, and community services?
  • What are the primary roadways, and how is the network performing now? Will the system accommodate continued growth
  • What do the residents want for their community?
  • How does the Town's existing network connect to and fit within the existing regional network?
  • How can a small town with limited resources accomplish significant goals over the long term?
