The Concept Plan, which was funded by CDOT, was completed in 2019. The Concept plan included the first draft of an alignment for the Bikeway. Once the County secured funding through a Denver Regional Council of Governments grant, the plan was presented to the public via a video public meeting. The public shared thoughts, concerns, and ideas during the meeting, through comment forms and through an online survey. These comments are being incorporated into the next step in the design process.
In 2014, The Northwest Area Mobility Study (NAMS) was completed. The NAMS report includes a prioritized list of mobility improvements for the Northwest area of the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) service area. CO 119 was identified as the top priority corridor for improving mobility in Boulder County and included recommendations for Bus Rapid Transit and a separated bike facility.
This collaborative effort included RTD, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) and the Northwest Area Stakeholders: 36 Commuting Solutions, City of Arvada, City of Boulder, Boulder County, City and County of Broomfield, City of Lafayette, City of Longmont, City of Louisville, North Area Transportation Alliance (NATA), Town of Superior, University of Colorado, and City of Westminster.
In 2019, a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) report was completed which identified the multi-modal corridor vision for CO 119. This vision includes:
- Bus Rapid Transit (including Park-n-Rides, new stations, Business and Transit lanes, Transit Signal Priority/queue jump lanes)
- Intersection Improvements
- BRT/Managed Lanes
- Separated Bikeway
