Key Points

Boulder County, Colo. - The next phase of the US 287 Vision Zero Safety & Mobility Study is now underway. Join the effort by participating in a self-guided virtual public meeting open now through Sept. 10 at

The study area covers the US 287 highway corridor through Boulder County and the City & County of Broomfield to West Midway Boulevard.

During this second virtual meeting on US 287 safety and mobility, participants can learn about the project, review the draft safety recommendations, and share ideas and feedback to the project team.

Since the first open house, the planning team has developed safety improvement recommendations and are studying the feasibility of a walk and bike path. The team is also taking immediate action to improve safety prior to study completion by seeking funding for installation of a median barrier.

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 improvements for people using all modes of transportation.

The study is a collaborative effort with Boulder County, City of Longmont, Town of Erie, City of Lafayette, City & County of Broomfield and regional agency partners, including the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Denver Regional Council of Government (DRCOG).

The US 287 study will continue through December 2023. For more information or to sign-up for project updates, visit, or contact Kathleen Bracke at 720-564-2285 or
