Phase 2: The Phase 2 trail right-of-way plan has been submitted to CDOT. Construction is anticipated for Summer 2024. The project is federally funded and will need to get approval to advertise for construction from CDOT. This will be the last update on this phase until construction begins.
The project was presented to OSTAC December 9, 2021 to get input on the trail alignment. Staff recommended the alignment of Phase 2 go on the northside of Industrial Lane, OSTAC concurred. An Intergovernmental Agreement has been approved amending the budget to $3,500,000 (80% grant funding). The additional funds will go toward construction. The 90% plan review is complete; however CDOT requested additional historical surveys be done on two properties. The consultant has commenced the right-of-way phase to acquire the required right-of-way or easements to construct the trail.
This project will create safe bike and pedestrian access along Industrial Lane. It will also improve access to the US 36 Bikeway for Broomfield residents.
The project will create safe bike and pedestrian access along Industrial Lane. It will also improve access to the US 36 Bikeway for Broomfield residents. A survey of the Industrial Lane corridor has been completed.
This project will be coordinated with the West Midway Pedestrian Bridge project and the Nickel Street project to make significant improvements to bike and pedestrian mobility in the area.
The project was presented to the public on August 15, 2018, for feedback at the Broomfield Community Center as part of the Walk Bike Broomfield Open House. The public indicated preferences for a 12-foot concrete multi-use trail and to prioritize the trail segment from Nickel Street to the box culvert under US 36. This is approximately halfway between Nickel Street and Flatiron Crossing on Industrial Lane.
A design agreement with Loris and Associates (now Otak) was presented and approved by City Council on November 27, 2018. Design will include survey, underground utility engineering, geotechnical and right of way acquisition.
