State Highway 119 Pedestrian Underpass

The SH 119 Pedestrian Underpass is a joint project between the City of Longmont, Boulder County and the Colorado Department of Transportation. A grade separated crossing of SH 119 is planned just southwest of Hover Street. This project will provide a key pedestrian/bicycle connection between Dry Creek Drive and Pike Road as well as provide an alternative to the busy SH 119 & Hover Street intersection. Attached is an overall site plan which shows the proposed improvements.

Funding for this project will be a combination of DRCOG TIP, Boulder County and City of Longmont funds. The City's local match come from the Transportation System Management (TSM) Program which is funded by the City's 3/4 Cent Street Fund Sales and Use Tax.

The City’s consultant, Loris and Associates, is currently working on the design. Final design and right-of-way acquisition are scheduled to be completed in 2014. Construction was originally planned to start this summer; however, the City has decided to delay construction to 2015, due to the impacts from the flood.

As the design progresses, the City will be holding a public open house meeting to present the proposed improvements to interested stakeholders. If you have questions or would like more information about this project, please contact Micah Zogorski at (303) 651-8594 or
