Phase II: US 287 Vision Zero Safety & Mobility Study
The US 287 Vision Zero Safety & Mobility Study is a collaborative effort to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries on US 287, while addressing multimodal mobility needs and opportunities for this section of the corridor. The effort is led by Boulder County in partnership with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), the municipalities along this corridor, the consultant team, Commuting Solutions, and members of the traveling public.
The US 287 Vision Zero & Mobility Study looks at safety for people of all ages and abilities, using all modes of transportation along the corridor with respect to the roadway, intersections, station areas, and connections for walking and bicycling. The study identifies traffic crash “hot spots” and safety concerns along the corridor as well as provides recommendations to improve safety. Below you can read the Study draft report.
The final phase of the US 287 Vision Zero Safety & Mobility Study is underway. Boulder County asked members of the traveling public to review the draft report and take a brief survey in November 2023. Boulder County is currently incorporating public comments to finish the report, which will be published on this website by the end of December 2023.
The final public comment period for the US 287 Vision Zero Safety & Mobility Study is over. Thank you to the many community members who shared their time and perspectives to ensure this study captures a wide range of concerns and ideas. Please stay tuned for future projects along this corridor and sign up for the County’s US 287 Corridor email list to stay up to date.
