Public meetings scheduled to provide feedback on draft recommended updates to Transportation Master Plan (TMP)

Recommendations available for review soon at

Boulder County, Colo. -After reviewing input from the public and completing extensive data analysis, Boulder County Transportation staff have developed draft recommendations for the Transportation Master Plan (TMP) Update. These draft recommendations include the policies, programs, and projects that will help Boulder County Transportation continue to develop a multimodal transportation system that will serve the public far into the future.

The public’s help last fall was invaluable during the initial phases of the update process. Now the public is asked once again to review and provide feedback on the recommended updates developed using public input.

The TMP is being updated to include: new or trending transportation-related technology; changes in demographics, land use, and travel patters; and, opportunities for infrastructure and economic resiliency. Work also includes identification of funding challenges and opportunities.

“The TMP is our roadmap for the development and maintenance of the county’s transportation network, so current and future residents, workers, and visitors can live their lives while preserving what makes this place so special,” commented George Gerstle, Transportation Director for Boulder County. “We want to make sure everyone who lives, works, and visits Boulder County has a convenient, sustainable, affordable, and safe way to get to where they’re going.”

The revised document will include updates to each of the five key strategies, including completed projects, travel patterns, and project cost estimates. In addition, the work will also take a deeper look at:

  • Performance metrics
