Area cities consider agreement to improve Freedom Parkway

LOVELAND — The Loveland City Council may join forces with several other municipalities in an effort to transform what is called Colorado Highway 402 in Loveland to an arterial that is better able to handle traffic volumes expected along the corridor.

The road is also known as Freedom Parkway and extends from Loveland to Kersey in Weld County. According to the Reporter-Herald, the regional cities along its path are considering reducing the number of direct access points and how to reconfigure the roadway to handle more traffic.

Colorado 402 goes by Weld County Road 54 in that county. Traffic studies say that numbers of vehicles will increase on it as development of the region continues. Area governments being asked to join in an intergovernmental agreement include Loveland, Johnstown, Milliken, Kersey, Greeley and Evans, along with Larimer and Weld counties.
