BOULDER — The Colorado Department of Transportation is extending the acceleration lane on eastbound U.S. 36 at the Foothills on-ramp to relieve traffic.
The lane will be lengthened by about two miles, the Daily Camera reports. The plan is to ease Denver-bound traffic caused by drivers trying to merge from the Foothills Parkway on-ramp.
The 2nd of a 2-part series featuring Lauran Arledge, CEO, boldfont Coaching; Kim Drumgo, Chief Diversity Officer, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield; Elizabeth Rita, Founder & Senior Investigator, Investigations Law Group; and Peter Salas, Chairman, Latino Chamber of Commerce of Boulder County.
The additional lane is created by reformatting the existing lanes and using the shoulder to widen the acceleration lane. The cost of the project is about $100,000.
