Woodland Park Looks at Traffic Circulation

· Sep. 22, 2015, 7:10 am

The city of Woodland Park is taking the next step in planning for traffic issues in and around the city.

A traffic circulation study team will present more refined options that look at ways to alleviate congested traffic conditions in Woodland Park at a public meeting Tuesday night. 

The city's Planning Director Sally Riley says even though it usually comes down to funding, the city is trying to get citizen input to determine which issues are the most pressing.

"It's very important to receive input from out community, so that they have buy in to assist the planning for future traffic improvements," says Riley.

Riley says they're planning to focus on side streets, and improvements to pedestrian, bicycle and parking areas that don't require approval from the Colorado Department of Transportation. 

The public meeting takes place tonight, Tuesday, at 6 at the Ute Pass Cultural Center.
