With your feedback, Council set to consider updated transportation plan Sept. 19

Prioritizing bike lanes on local streets, increasing mobility Downtown, and a sidepath on Fifth Street are just some of the ideas you contributed to the Transportation Master Plan draft, which Town Council is expected to consider tonight.

As part of the Town’s overall planning efforts, the Transportation Master Plan specifically visualizes all aspects of transportation for Castle Rock, including roadways, bicycle routes, pedestrian links, transit, carpooling and more. Last updated in 2011, the new draft looks ahead to 2040.

Since fall 2016, the Town has been gathering feedback and conducting research and analysis to update the plan. Many of the items on the public’s transportation wish list were already on the Town’s radar – projects like the Crystal Valley Interchange, traffic signal installations and additional bike lanes.

The draft plan includes those projects. It also recommends a possible interchange with Interstate 25 near Black Feather Drive, partnerships with CDOT such as Bustang, and additional studies on transit and Downtown mobility. Read the full draft plan at CRgov.com/TMP.

Council will consider adopting the updated Transportation Master Plan Sept. 19 at its regular meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers at Town Hall, 100 N. Wilcox St. There will be time for additional public comment during the meeting.

If adopted, the Transportation Master Plan becomes an official guide for Town projects and planning. Specifically, Town experts will reference the plan when developing the Town’s five-year Capital Improvement Program and the annual budget. It’s important to remember available funding is always a consideration when planning large capital projects.
