Planning for Active Transportation

Active transportation is defined as a means of traveling using human-powered mobility, primarily walking and biking.

A number of citywide plans include active transportation objectives aimed to provide Longmont with an efficient transportation system. Ideally, this system will enhance mobility, equitably support multiple modes of transportation, reduce environmental impacts and promote a healthier community.

  • I see that the Enhanced Multi-use Corridor Plan includes a proposal for improving pedestrian and bike routes along Emery Street. What's the latest news on these plans -- are they on hold or are they scheduled for a particular timeframe? Thanks!

    Hi there!

    Emery Street is one of ten corridors (not including Coffman Street) identified as an Enhanced Multi-Use Corridor (EMUC).

    The City is currently developing the next 5-year Capital Improvement Program (2020-2024) that includes a partially funded project (TRP132) to design and construct the proposed improvements. Given the limited Street Fund resources, staff is proposing a “phased” implementation plan for the EMUC improvements. For example, re-striping a street for buffered bike lanes is a lower cost improvement that is more easily implemented than replacing an existing 4’ sidewalk with an 8’ concrete multi-use path.

    The EMUC plan included prioritization of the various segments. TRP132 is currently focusing on the highest ranked sections: Mountain View Avenue and 21st Avenue.

    We hope this helps. Thank you for your interest!
