Colorado Boulevard Meeting

Welcome

Welcome to our "Virtual Community Meeting". The following series of videos and images has been created to walk you through the Colorado Blvd project. The order of the information is meant to provide you a comprehensive look at data we have gathered along the corridor, alternatives that are being developed, and next steps for the project – just as if you were at an in-person public meeting.

The intent of this Colorado Blvd. Study is to identify alternative transportation options to include in the City’s Transportation Master Plan. Please note, this is the initial step of many and that no projects is currently planned for the Colorado Blvd. Corridor.

Project Description

This planning project focuses on Colorado Blvd from County Line Road to Orchard Road. Colorado Blvd is a major corridor connecting Centennial to Highlands Ranch. Four major east-west corridors intersect the project corridor which includes major transportation corridors and activity centers.

This project was developed as an initiative by the City of Centennial to collect data to determine existing conditions within segment of Colorado Blvd, create a list of improvements with public input, analyze improvement costs, and develop an implementation plan.

As a part of the City’s Comprehensive Plan, Centennial NEXT, the intended outcome of this study will be to improve the transportation system within the corridor by providing expanded mobility options, greater connectivity and improved safety for all users. This study will identify and prioritize a list of potential projects along the corridor but is not intended to provide final design or construction documents. The overall goals of the project are:

  • Identify multimodal opportunities
  • Reflect community character through design
  • Embrace citizen participation
  • Provide connectivity for bikes and pedestrians Improve safety for all users

The first step in the project was understanding the existing conditions along the corridor. This included engaging the public and stakeholders to understand the issues in the corridor and what a successful project would look like to users of the corridor. Once we understood some of the issues, we were able to prepare alternatives and evaluation criteria to help us determine which alternatives might work best to improve multimodal connectivity and corridor safety.

Based on the information collected; the project team will refine the alternatives and submit a recommendation to the City this winter. There are additional opportunities for you to provide comments and stay involved with the project.
