CDOT is currently in the planning phase of a project on the US 6 corridor, beginning at I-70B and ending just east of Clifton Elementary School. This section of US 6 is a congested urban corridor through the unincorporated Mesa County neighborhood of Clifton and serves as the community’s main street. The US 6 corridor is a multimodal facility, which provides commuter access as well as access to an elementary school, the U.S. Post Office and other local businesses.
CDOT completed a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study in 2015 that examined the need for transportation improvements along the US 6 corridor through Clifton to improve:
- mobility and reduce congestion;
- corridor and intersection operations;
- multimodal facilities; and
- safety for all users
Following completion of the PEL, CDOT has refined and further developed potential improvements to the US 6 corridor to reduce right-of-way impacts while also improving operational performance, safety, and reduced congestion.
CDOT will be conducting an open house for the project October 12th, 5:30 to 7:30 at Clifton Community Hall – 126 2nd St., Clifton, CO. The meeting is to o allow the public and stakeholders to participate in the project and share their opinion on the potential improvements, suggest changes, or point out issues. Constructive comments will all be taken into consideration toward a final design. For more information on the project and details on when the open house will occur, please contact Tara Bettale (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jason Longsdorf (email@example.com).
