US 36 Express Lanes Project Update
The US 36 Express Lanes Project team continues temporary paving to get ready for moving all westbound traffic onto the temporary lanes later this year. Once traffic is moved, the team can begin work on the eastbound lanes.
This month, you will see continued bridge work along the corridor at Lowell Boulevard, Wadsworth Parkway and the US 36 bridges over East and West FlatIron Crossing. There is also a lot of activity along the sides of the highway, including drainage work, utility relocation and wall installation. For more information on the project, go to www.us36expresslanes.com
Introducing Way to Go
Starting today, the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) will unveil the new brand of their RideArrangers program, Way to Go. The Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program for the Denver region will soon become much more recognizable, and will soon bring some great improvements to their commute options services.
Starting this week, DRCOG will launch its public awareness campaign, Stop Being an SOV, aimed at educating commuters about the problems caused by too many single occupant vehicles (SOVs) on the roads. The goal of the campaign is to start a conversation among Denver metro area commuters and make them aware of the issues and impacts of SOVs, such as increased traffic congestion, air pollution, cost and health concerns.
During the launch of the new campaign, you will begin seeing banners on and inside buses and light rail cars, billboards, online, posters and radio. Way to Go will also be placing benches made from the backseats of cars with a message stating “Just because an SOV didn’t use these, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them,” along with a URL for the program’s website. If you have an interest in having one of these benches in your building, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Community Input Needed for US 36 First and Final Mile Study
36 Commuting Solutions is requesting employees and residents along the US 36 corridor to participate in a survey to provide input to the US 36 First and Final Mile study. The study’s purpose is to develop solutions to address the “First and Final Mile” issue, which is characterized by the lack of convenient access to/from the US 36 RTD Park-n-Rides and the surrounding destinations such as residences, employment and shopping.
To participate in the survey, please visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/JXWKLDX
Participants will be entered to win a $25 American Express gift card. Please pass along this message to your colleagues, members and other US 36 stakeholders to ensure that we engage as many community members as possible.
