CO Highway 52 Update

Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is conducting a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study and Access Control Plan (ACP) for the state highway CO 52 corridor. This project will provide a long-term vision for the corridor by prioritizing projects and identifying funding for transportation improvement projects.

In recent years, traffic congestion along CO 52 has increased dramatically. The communities along the corridor utilize CO 52 to commute to business and industry centers. Changes in land use are causing the average daily traffic (ADT) to increase to a level that is straining the existing infrastructure along the corridor. CDOT is interested in a comprehensive document that creates a long-range plan to address corridor limitations with an emphasis on stakeholder involvement.

From August 24 - September 17, 2020 the Study Team hosted an online public engagement opportunity where we presented Study information as well as captured ideas and concerns from the public. With the help of local agency outreach, the engagement opportunity reached over 800 people. The team collected input through various platforms, including the Social Pinpoint Map and the Comment Wall as well as via email, phone, and a series of surveys. Thank you to all who participated in the online public engagement event and provided your feedback!

What’s next? Understanding the existing conditions along the corridor allows the Study Team to identify the needs and develop a Purpose and Need statement for the project. The next step will be to develop the evaluation criteria with our local agency partners. This is the beginning of the process for developing project alternatives for the corridor. As part of the study, the alternative options will go through two rounds of evaluation to identify projects that will best serve the corridor.
