A plan for bike lane and sidewalk improvements at US 287 and Nickel Street was sent to CDOT for review and they have issued comments. The project was presented to the public on August 15th at the Broomfield Community Center as part of the Walk Bike Broomfield Open House. Staff anticipates presenting an award agreement to Council in late Fall, and if approved, Construction is anticipated to start in the Winter 2018 and be completed in the Spring 2018.
The project will improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians by adding bike lanes to each side of Nickel Street, adding sidewalk, and making crosswalk improvements at US 287. The bike lanes will go from US 287 to Midway Boulevard.
