Goals, focus and findingsThe video below details the study's goals, areas of focus and some of its findings.
The Northwest Area Mobility Study is a 13-month effort that will develop a prioritized list of mobility improvements for the Northwest area of the Regional Transportation District's (RTD) service area. The study will focus on five key areas.
RTD initiated the study in response to the significant cost increases associated with building and operating commuter rail in the 41-mile Northwest corridor. The goal of the study is to collaborate with corridor stakeholders to determine if there is a more cost-effective way to approach improving mobility in the area that could be implemented sooner.
It is critical that RTD, local jurisdictions and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) achieve consensus on the recommendations in this study. A highly collaborative evaluation and consensus-building process will be utilized to develop the prioritized list of agreed-upon mobility improvements.
