Staff Reports–

Fort Collins, Colorado—The North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Organization (NFRMPO) is pleased to announce the second open house to discuss preliminary design concepts for the 34 Business RouteAccess Control Plan (ACP). The plan will cover the stretch of US 34 Business (10th Street) between State Highway 257 and 35th Avenue inGreeley.  The NFRMPO is partnering with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), the City ofGreeley, andWeldCounty to prepare this plan.

Property and business owners are encouraged to attend to provide feedback at:

Greeley Family FunPlex

1501 65th Ave.

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

4 p.m. – 7 p.m.

 

The goal of the plan is to enhance safety on US 34 Business for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians; to keep traffic flowing freely as volumes increase; to accommodate transit stops and circulation; and to provide appropriate levels of access to properties adjacent to the highway.

 

An Access Control Plan helps define:

  • the existing and future access locations, including the type of access (e.g. various arrangements of right- and left-turn movements);
  • which access points are likely to be signalized or to remain un-signalized;
  • other features of current and future intersections; and,
  • modifications needed at existing street and driveway access points.
