ADAMS COUNTY, CO – October 20, 2021 – An interactive online meeting is now available, presenting safety, mobility, and accessibility recommendations and improvements along Federal Boulevard from West 52nd Avenue to West 120th Avenue. Community members are encouraged to visit the on-demand, online meeting and provide feedback.
These recommendations were identified as part of the Federal Boulevard Multimodal Transportation Study, led by a joint effort of Adams County, City of Federal Heights, and City of Westminster.
When: Wednesday, Oct. 20, through Monday, Nov. 8

“The goal is to make Federal Boulevard safer for all,” said Debra Baskett, City of Westminster Senior Transportation and Mobility Planner. “Community members, whether they take the bus, drive or walk along Federal Boulevard, are encouraged to provide input.”
The Federal Boulevard Multimodal Transportation Study kicked off in 2020 to address safety challenges for all users, inconsistent pedestrian and bike facilities, limited connectivity to trails and destinations, the need for improved transit service and amenities along Federal Boulevard, and the volume and speed of vehicular traffic.
“Federal Boulevard is a main transportation corridor for Federal Heights and the region,” said Tim Williams, Federal Heights Community Development Director. “It is critical to identify solutions to ensure that the corridor can meet projected increases in demand in ways that will benefit our residents, businesses, and neighbors for years to come.”
The study will finish later this year with a recommended set of multimodal infrastructure improvements as a long-term vision for Federal Boulevard. Future funding will be sought through various local, state, and federal programs and grants, as well as private partnerships.
“Proposed solutions include safety improvements, better sidewalks for pedestrians, and ways to reduce congestion,” said Chris Chovan, Adams County Senior Transportation and Mobility Planner. “This is a great opportunity for residents to be heard and help improve Federal Boulevard.”
