US 287 Safety Study and Engagement
The Town of Erie has joined with multiple partners to improve safety and mobility along the US 287 corridor. Residents can participate in a self-guided virtual public meeting now through March 19 at www.boco.org/287VirtualOpenHouse. During the virtual meeting, participants can learn about the corridor's background and current conditions, share safety concerns and mobility needs, and provide input to the project team. The study area covers the US 287 highway corridor through Boulder County and the City & County of Broomfield to West Midway Boulevard.
This is a collaborative effort with Boulder County, City of Longmont, Town of Erie, City of Lafayette, City & County of Broomfield, and other regional agency partners, including the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Denver Regional Council of Government (DRCOG). Technical assistance is provided by Consor Engineers and CDR Associates, as well as Commuting Solutions.
The study will identify areas where crashes occur frequently, recognize different types of crashes and strategies to mitigate them, recommend data-driven solutions, and develop safety improvement concepts, including design of median barrier to prevent crashes in the rural areas. The study will also include planning for a future US 287 commuter bike path along the corridor from Longmont to Broomfield.
