City Councilmember Nancy Henjum is hosting a Town Hall to discuss a potential study addressing East-West mobility for the Fillmore Street and Uintah Street corridors.
At minimum, the proposed feasibility study would consider the following.
- Widening Fillmore Street
- Extending Constitution Avenue from Union Boulevard to I-25 utilizing existing right-of-way, or maintaining the current roadway configuration with the understanding that traffic congestion and delay will likely increase.
Other strategies will be developed and analyzed through a robust public process planned with a future feasibility study. The Town Hall meeting will be on Saturday, January 21 from 10:00am-12:00pm at Stratton Elementary School.
As part of the future feasibility study scope, it will be important to identify safeguards for a potential Fillmore Street or Constitution Avenue project to minimize and mitigate impacts on existing neighborhoods. The Town Hall will obtain citizen input to help identify these safeguards, which will be included in the ConnectCOS Appendix A project description. There is no funding or timeline identified for East-West mobility improvements.
