What is the Transportation Capital Projects Prioritization Study?

Building off the success of previous analysis and prioritization studies, the City and Larimer County are kicking off the Transportation Capital Projects Prioritization Study (TCPPS). The TCPPS will analyze safety and congestion data for intersections and arterial roadways within Fort Collins and its Growth Management Area in unincorporated Larimer County. The study will ultimately provide a prioritized project list to guide the City and County as they develop a capital improvement plan and seek funding to improve the transportation network. While previous planning efforts like the Transportation Master Plan will be used as touchpoints to include multimodal improvements, the intent is not to update these documents.

Please note that this study only focuses on arterial roadways (major roadways like Drake Road, Timberline Road, etc.) and not local neighborhood streets.


Why do we want your input?

The City and County want to engage with you to make this a better project for our community! Public input is encouraged throughout the course of the study as it will help us develop the best possible prioritized lists of transportation projects and evaluation criteria. The public survey is the first way to participate.


Public Survey Instructions

The public survey is directly below. The survey is a mapping exercise for you to show us where issues related to biking, walking, driving, and taking transit exist within the City and its Growth Management Area. Scroll down to the "MAP" tab below to read more, and click on the blue "GO TO MAP" button to start the survey. The survey will be available until September 5, 2021. Thank you for your time and insight!

Public Survey

4 months

To complete this exercise, click on the plus icon ("add pin") on the left side of the screen. Four pin options will appear, including one for walking, biking, driving, and taking transit. Please drag and drop each pin type onto the map of Fort Collins and its Growth Management Area to identify locations where you notice and experience safety or congestion related issues for each mode of travel. Once you place a pin, please add a comment to describe the issue you're highlighting. 

Please note that this study only focuses on arterial roadways (major roadways like Drake Road, Timberline Road, etc.) and not local neighborhood streets. Identify issues related to arterial intersections and roadways.

MAP LEGEND

Examples issues to think about are provided by mode below:

Example Walking Issues

  • Crossing roadways without using a pedestrian facility like a crosswalk
  • Crossing roadways or walking on the shoulder due to the absence of a sidewalk or curb ramps
  • Frequent jaywalking
  • Large groups of pedestrians cross a street (schools, entertainment areas, etc.)
  • Non-existent pedestrian facilities
  • Too narrow of pedestrian facilities

Example Biking Issues

  • Cyclists traveling in the same lane as automobiles (i.e., not in a designated bike lanes)
  • Cyclists traveling on the shoulder due to the absence of bike lanes/facilities
  • Large number of traveling cyclists, creating congestion along the roadway
  • Poor visibility for bicyclists

Example Driving Issues

  • Drivers running red lights or stop signs
  • Drivers traveling faster than the posted speed limit
  • Obstructed sight distances
  • Drivers dangerously passing vehicles/buses/transit

Example Transit Issues

  • Transit riders running/crossing roadways while boarding or departing the transit service
  • Transit riders traveling on the shoulder due to the absence of transit facilities or sidewalk
  • Large number of traveling transit riders, creating congestion along the roadway
  • Non-existent transit infrastructure where a transit stop should be located 

If you prefer, you can upload a photo of the location with your map pin. It is recommended to have these photos ready before starting this survey.
