Town of Erie, Colorado

County Line Road Improvements

Welcome to the County Line Road Improvements project website.  This project is funded through a CDOT/Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) Safer Main Street grant that supports infrastructure projects that improve safety and accessibility along urban arterials, especially for vulnerable users who depend on a reliable urban street network project.  This project will make corridor and safety improvements along County Line Road between Telleen Avenue and Evans Street.

We are currently in the Virtual Open House phase of this project, which will be open for 2 weeks. Please check out What We Heard for a summary of results from our Public Survey and visit the Virtual Open House page to comment and vote for your preferred design concept.

Project Introduction and Background

Existing Conditions and Potential Improvements

The Town of Erie’s County Line Road design project will help improve safety and mobility along the corridor between Telleen Avenue and Evans Street. The project will develop design plans that include bike lanes, sidewalk, turn lanes and medians and location specific safety treatments within the right-of-way.
Crash and volume data will be used to help determine potential conceptual designs that fulfill the corridor’s needs and project goals. Online survey and “open houses,” provided via this website, will allow the community to provide input and feedback on the current corridor configuration and future designs.

This project is an exciting opportunity to help create a safe and low-stress environment for pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers along the corridor, including a connection to Erie’s recreational trails. Sanderson Stewart’s project approach, combined with our extensive experience on similar corridor design projects, can transform the Town of Erie’s vision to a final design that stakeholders will agree upon. Work will be completed in compliance with applicable local and national design guidance, including the Town of Erie’s Engineering Standards and Specifications, Weld County Engineering and Construction Criterial Manual, the Manual on Uniform Traffic Controls Devices (MUTCD), the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) guidelines including the Greenbook, CDOT Project Development Manual, CDOT Design Guide, CDOT M&S Standards, CDOT Construction Manual and Specifications, the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and Public Rights-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG).
