US 36 is a major regional corridor that connects Denver to Boulder and passes through a number of metro region communities including Broomfield. Since the early 2000s, this corridor has undergone extensive changes to accommodate the transportation needs in the Front Range that are a result of rapid population growth. Included in these changes has been a major capacity expansion project that rebuilt the roadway and added managed lanes and durable shoulders that allow buses, the ongoing development of a multi-use path connecting all of the corridor communities, and the rollout of a Bus Rapid Transit Service on the corridor. In addition to these major roadway enhancements, the project has also led to significant investment at corridor transit stations and in surrounding transit-oriented development. The following plans contributed to the development of the corridor.
- US 36 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
- US 36 First & Final Mile Study
- US 36 Northwest Corridor Bicycle & Pedestrian Accessibility Study
