The public is invited to attend and comment on the proposed design alternatives for the 30th Street Corridor development project.
During the meeting, the public will have an opportunity to view displays related to the project focus:
- Increase the width of 30th Street to accommodate 7-foot-wide multi-use shoulders
- Storm sewer design and water quality
- Side street and intersection improvements, including a proposed roundabout at Gateway Road
- Preserving the natural, rural features of the corridor
The 30th Street corridor has been identified as an Emergency Evacuation Corridor for Colorado Springs. Safety, pavement and drainage improvements are necessary to better facilitate emergency vehicles and provide for an emergency evacuation route.
Recommended design elements of the corridor include two 11-foot travel lanes, 7-foot multi-use shoulders on each side of the road, drainage abatement, slope stability and improved traffic operations. Widening the two-lane road from its current 24 feet to 37 feet will allow vehicles to pull over for emergency vehicles such as ambulances and fire trucks during emergency response events.
