You spoke, we listened! Midway Boulevard was identified by the community as an important corridor during the 2019 Broomfield Bicycle and Pedestrian Assessment. Your feedback is now needed to shape Midway's Multimodal Plan! Share your ideas, experiences and provide feedback on options to create safer and more comfortable, connected, and convenient transportation opportunities for all ages and abilities along the Midway Corridor.


The City and County of Broomfield in partnership with the project team development of draft concept plans for Midway Blvd in the spring of 2022. The draft concept plans are aimed at improving mobility, comfort, and safety with a focus on making improvements for walking, bicycling and speed compliance in the Midway corridor. The draft concept plans have incorporated data collected about Midway Blvd’s existing conditions, as well as community input received throughout the project. Public engagement opportunities regarding the draft concept plans ran from early-August 2022 through early-October 2022 and your feedback has been incorporated into the final design concepts as well as the project report. Final project documents will be available on this website beginning in early 2023.

How do I Provide Input on the Draft Concept Plans?

Your input has been essential to ensure the proposed improvements are the right fit for the community. Your feedback has been used to help the City and County of Broomfield to develop interim and final recommendations for Midway Blvd improvements. Engagement opportunities about the draft concept plans ended in October 2022 and your feedback has been incorporated into the final plans and the project report.

The final interim and concept corridor improvement plans, along with the final Midway Blvd Multimodal Report will be available for your review on this Broomfield Voice page in early 2023.


How the Project Team Arrived at the Draft Concept Plans

In phase I of the design process, the City and County of Broomfield split the corridor into five character areas that shared similar existing roadway use patterns and lane configurations:

  • Lake Link Trail to the US 287 Intersection
  • US 287 Intersection to Main Street
  • Main Street to Ash Street
  • Ash Street to Sheridan Boulevard
  • Sheridan Boulevard to Zuni Street

For each roadway section, three alternative roadway cross sections were developed including an interim condition, which identified short term, lower cost improvements; and two future condition cross sections.


Future Cross Section Example


The City and County of Broomfield asked the community to provide input on the roadway cross sections to help identify the preferred cross section for each segment of the corridor.


Draft Concept Plans

In Phase II of the alternatives development process the City and County of Broomfield has taken all of the information learned up to this point and developed draft concept plans for the entire corridor. These plans utilize the preferred cross sections from Phase I of the alternatives development, as well as crossing, intersection, and operational changes to improve the corridor. Additionally, the CIty and County of Broomfield has made recommendations to help achieve the project goals including:

  • Implementing best practices for safety at intersections to improve pedestrian and bicycle visibility and driver awareness of when and where to expect pedestrians and bicycles.
  • Clarifying roadway striping to enhance predictability and operations on the roadway.
  • Taking measures to avoid or minimize impacts that the project team is aware of on the corridor, including: impacts to mature trees, parking, impacts outside of Broomfield right-of-way, impacts to natural resources, and, where possible avoiding impacts to existing city maintained irrigation systems.
Further, the project team met with Broomfield Public Works, Parks, and Open Space staff to share plans and identify the improvements that work best from a maintenance standpoint. This will minimize the additional expenses for plowing and generally maintaining the newly proposed transportation facilities.


Why is Broomfield Doing this Plan?

The City and County of Broomfield Transportation Master Plan and the Broomfield Bicycle and Pedestrian Assessment identified the need for a Midway Multimodal Plan due to high crash rates, community input, and the diverse populations and land uses along the corridor. Previous planning efforts identified improved walking and bicycling routes as part of Broomfield's low stress bike network and the need to improve crossings at major intersections in the corridor. The Midway Multimodal Plan will identify basic and enhanced design options that will allow for systematic implementation as funding is available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Public engagement for this project began in early August of 2021 and has included an online commenting map, a number of in person events, and three virtual public meetings. The project team has heard hundreds of comments from these outreach activities and has compiled a frequently asked questions to address some of the most common questions from the public. Please click here to review the frequently asked questions from the first phase of this project.

Will There Be Meetings?

Broomfield held three e-meetings in September 2021. You can watch the recording of the first meeting by following the link here or view an abbreviated of the meeting presentation here. This meeting reviewed the project schedule, existing conditions, and options for design improvements.



Midway DRAFT Interim and Future Concept Plans

Your input is essential to ensure the proposed improvements are the right fit for the community. Your feedback will be used to help the City and County of Broomfield to develop a final recommendation for Midway Blvd improvements. Give input on both the draft interim (near term) recommended improvements, and the draft future (long term) recommended improvements. You can engage by clicking the "Draft Concept Plans" tab at the bottom of the page to open the interim and future plan sets and comment. Please note that due to the large file sizes, loading the plans make take a few moments.

Completing the improvements for the entire corridor at one time is not financially feasible. Improvements have been broken up into a number of smaller projects that can be accomplished on a staggered timeline as funding becomes available. The engagement tools at the bottom of the page on the Konveio tab include the complete concept plans, as well as information about individual projects on the corridor that are necessary to complete the corridor improvements. 

The public engagement opportunities for the draft concept plans will be open until Sept. 16, 2022.

Thank you for submitting your comments about the Midway Boulevard Draft Concept Plans. This engagement opportunity is now closed so the project team can work on addressing the comments submitted as well as working to wrap up the project. Please stay tuned for the final Midway Boulevard Multimodal Plan report in early 2023.
