Transportation Projects

Lafayette Multimodal Transportation Plan (MMTP)

The City's first-ever Multimodal Transportation Plan (MMTP) is underway. We are in the process of analyzing relevant data and gathering community input to understand the existing and future conditions of multimodal transportation and mobility in and around Lafayette. 

The project team will consider existing and planned future land uses, traffic operations, safety, access, mobility, and connectivity of all transportation modes such as walking, biking, transit, and driving. The MMTP is being completed in close coordination with local and regional plans and projects, including the City’s Comprehensive Plan(External link).

The results of this multimodal analysis, in addition to community and stakeholder input, will help to identify the transportation needs of the City and develop near- and long-term actions and solutions to preserve and improve the City’s transportation system.

South Boulder Road Multimodal Improvement Project

The Project will enhance safety and multimodal travel for all users along this corridor. Work includes improvements to South Boulder Road, between the Saratoga/Merlin Drive intersection and 120th Street, with minor work on City Center Circle and on 120th Street, between approximately Eastwind Drive and Coal Creek. 

Enhancements include bike lanes, a new 6-foot wide sidewalk on the north, a new 10-foot wide multi-use path along the south, reconstructing the LaMont Does Park parking lot, burying overhead power lines, a new signalized and widened intersection at 120th St., improving drainage, and the replacement of an aging water line.

CO7 Multimodal Corridor: Boulder to Brighton

The purpose of this project is to improve traveler safety, improve personal travel efficiency and operations, and improve access to multimodal travel along a nearly 25 mile stretch of Colorado State Highway 7 (CO 7) between Brighton and Boulder.

Multiple planning and feasibility studies have established the corridor’s future multimodal vision, including an integrated plan of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) improvements supported by multimodal (roadway, bicycle and pedestrian) infrastructure and transit supportive land development at planned station areas. Priority projects are being identified and preliminary design plans developed to encourage quick investment in the transportation improvements amongst the municipalities, counties, agencies and developers along the corridor. Visit the project website to learn more.

US Highway 287 Corridor Planning - Vision Safety and Mobility Study

Boulder County, in coordination with stakeholders, regional partners and members of the public, is conducting a multi-phased re-envisioning process. This first phase of the study, closely examines the feasibility of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) implementation on the US 287 corridor between Longmont and Broomfield to address the growing congestion and travel demand in the area. 

The study will recommend the type and location of capital investments that will enhance transit travel times on US 287 through conducting an analysis that will assess traffic patterns, current transit operations and infrastructure, vehicle queue lengths, opportunities for intersections treatments, and a Station Areas Toolkit.  View the project website.

Future 42

The Cities of Lafayette and Louisville are working together to envision the future of State Highway 42 (also known as 95th Street, CO-42, or Courtesy Road) for people who walk, bike, ride transit, or drive.  Visit the project website.
