Metropolitan Planning Area Boundary; Moving Forward 2040

Friday is the last day to submit comments on a proposed transportation plan for the Pikes Peak area.

Moving Forward 2040 looks at existing and future needs for improvements to multi-modal transportation, and identifies $6 billion worth of need.  The plan has allocated $3 billion toward projects based on projected federal, state, and local funding.

The plan comes from the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments.  Some of the projects include the construction of sidewalks in Downtown Monument, extending the Fountain Creek Regional Trail, and widening Academy Boulevard, among many others.

Moving Forward 2040 is based on three years of research and takes on issues such as pedestrian safety and traffic congestion.
