Project Overview

The City of Lafayette strives to accommodate the safe and efficient movement of people using all modes of travel while retaining our small-town livability. Beginning in November 2023, the City will partner with the Town of Erie, the Boulder County Transportation Department, and the Colorado Department of Transportation on a project to enhance multimodal safety and accessibility at the intersection of State Highway 7 (SH 7) and 119th Street.

This project will advance commuting and multimodal improvements such as the widening of 119th Street at SH 7, improved drainage, dedicated right and left turn lanes, future transit lanes, new sidewalks, signalized crosswalks and dedicated bike lanes.

Project Work Includes

The project consists of improvements within and adjacent to the intersection of SH 7 and 119th Street including additional left turn lanes, right turn deceleration lanes, transit lanes for future improvements, dedicated bike lanes, sidewalks, relocating utilities, installing traffic signals, and storm water management.

To bring these improvements forward, the following construction activities will take place during this project:

  • Utility relocation
  • Roadway obstruction and material removal
  • Storm drainage installation
  • Sidewalk and curb ramp installation on SH 7 at the northwest corner of the intersection
  • New roadway construction, including repaving and roadway widening
  • The addition of dedicated bike lanes on both 119th Street and SH 7 at the intersection
  • Intersection traffic signal improvements
  • Landscape restoration

The construction phase of the project is estimated to be substantially complete by late 2024.

Funding

The construction of this improvement project will be funded by the City of Lafayette, Boulder County, the Town of Erie, and federal grants. Due to the shared location among jurisdictions, the project is being completed under agreements between the City of Lafayette, the Town of Erie, and CDOT. This is a Federal-aid Project administered through CDOT Region 4.
