Feasibility Study

This first phase of the study examines the feasibility of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) implementation to address the growing congestion and travel demand in the area. The study will make recommendations on transit routes and infrastructure to improve travel speed and reliability on US 287.

The study will assess traffic patterns, current transit operations and infrastructure, congestion triggers, and opportunities for intersection improvements, and propose a toolkit to upgrade transit stations and the infrastructure surrounding them.

Learn more about the study on the US Highway 287 Corridor Planning webpage. Questions or comments on the study may be emailed to Jeff Butts, Boulder County Multimodal Transportation Planner: jbutts@bouldercounty.org.
