State Highway (SH) 119 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Study Continues

RTD is currently evaluating the viability of implementing BRT service along SH 119 between Boulder and Longmont. The study will address the growing congestion and travel demand, environmental impacts, multimodal access, transit reliability, and transit travel time. Initial public meetings were held in November 2017, but more are tentatively planned for February 2018 (details coming soon).

For more information, or to provide feedback, visit the study website.

CDOT State Highway (SH) 119 Bikeway Study Starts Soon

Depending on the outcome of RTD's SH 119 Study, bicyclists may be displaced from their current place on the outside shoulder of the Diagonal Highway. CDOT will lead a study in partnership with staff from the City of Boulder, the City of Longmont, RTD, and Boulder County to explore alternative bicycle facilities if the RD study recommends placing buses on the outside shoulder. All options are currently on the table. We anticipate the bikeway study will kick-off in the spring of 2018.
