It is no secret Northern Colorado is growing quickly and is expected to keep growing. By 2040, Fort Collins expects to add nearly 80,000 residents but is starting to plan now to accommodate the transportation needs of these new and existing residents. With no plans to widen streets to six lanes, Fort Collins is considering alternative transportation as a solution. Alternative transportation includes biking, walking, and improved bus services. Various projects include turning Harmony Road and West Elizabeth Street into enhanced travel corridors, realigning North Lemay Avenue, and building an overpass over the railroad tracks.
