Project Background

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), in partnership with the City and County of Broomfield (Broomfield), is kicking off a multimodal and safety study to develop concepts to improve the US 287/120th Avenue corridor. The project will seek to understand the impact of changing traffic patterns since the completion of the 120th Avenue Connection project as well as look for ways to improve multimodal capacity and address safety. 120th Avenue is recognized as part of the High Injury Network and a Critical Corridor by the Denver Regional Council of Governments' Taking Action on Vision Zero Plan.

Significant gaps in infrastructure remain for pedestrians and bicycles that need to be addressed. Additionally, the corridor is identified as a potential Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor in the 2014 Northwest Area Mobility Study (NAMS) and the project team will look at options for improving access to transit facilities and operational improvements to increase the reliability of transit.

With a renewed emphasis and heightened awareness of safety and mobility of all users along busy corridors, including planning for vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and transit, the US 287/120th Avenue Multimodal and Safety Study is an opportunity to create a vision and plan that recognizes the diverse needs of City and County of Broomfield residents, business owners, visitors and traveling public.


Project Location


Goals and Objectives

Join Broomfield and CDOT envision a future corridor that:

  • Builds on previous City and County of Broomfield, CDOT, and RTD studies and improvement efforts to develop a comprehensive plan that improves safety, operations, and equity for all modes of travel
  • Increases safety for all travelers
  • Improves accessibility of multimodal transportation facilities for all ages and abilities
  • Identifies multimodal transportation infrastructure gaps within the project area
  • Promotes 120th Avenue as a future Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor

Public Outreach for Residents

This project is a partnership between CDOT and the City and County of Broomfield. In June, Broomfield and CDOT began seeking input throughout the corridor project limits where you are experiencing gaps in accessible multimodal travel for all ages and abilities, safety challenges, or where overall multimodal options for residents can be improved.

The Surveys for existing conditions along the corridor and the interactive map is now closed. The project team will be collecting public input in the near future on the recommended improvements based on the feedback collected.

Your feedback is important and the project team will keep you updated on when and where these opportunities will be occurring on this project page and the type of input being sought as the study progresses.


Public Outreach for Business Owners

The Colorado Department of Transportation in partnership with the City and County of Broomfield is hosting three Virtual Project Q&A Panels for business owners regarding the US 287/120th Avenue Multimodal and Safety Study project on Wednesday, September 28, 2022.

During the virtual session, the project team will give a brief overview of the project and the goals and objectives for these efforts as well as give a brief overview of the upcoming alternative corridor improvement ideas. The team will then answer any questions and listen to comments from local business owners.
