Arapahoe County seeks public's input on transportation

Posted

People who live or work in Arapahoe County are invited to take a survey that allows them to weigh in on key transportation corridors in the county.

The survey, launched by the county's public works and development department, will be open until March 19 and can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/r/AC2040TMP

The county is seeking input to help it determine the best ways to improve the transportation network as the county's roads continue to become more congested, according to a news release.

“The survey will allow respondents to tell our officials about the types of improvements — from managing congestion to increasing safety to exploring alternative modes like on-street bike lanes — that are most important to them,” the release states. “County officials realize that the input of the public that uses our roads every single day is vitally important to building a community-supported plan that considers the things that are most important to our residents.”

According to the news release, previous surveys and analysis found that drivers on county roads will see a 32% increase in miles traveled by 2040, and travel on roads considered congested will increase from 16.5% today to 20.4% by 2040.

“As the county continues to grow, long-term planning is essential to maintaining the quality of life that makes Arapahoe County so exceptional,” County Commissioner Jeff Baker said in the release.
