Multimodal facility open house on Tuesday

City of Glenwood Springs transportation officials will host an open house on Tuesday, Aug. 21, to present conceptual design plans and take comments regarding a multimodal transit facility.

The open house will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and again from 4:30-6:30 p.m., at the Glenwood Springs Community Center, 100 Wulfsohn Road.

Earlier this year, a local project working group selected a combination of three downtown-area sites as its preferred location to eventually develop the multimodal facility.

It would include the existing Amtrak station, the former water treatment plant site on Seventh Street, and the parking lot area west of Glenwood Springs City Hall on Eighth Street.

Conceptual plans will show how the three sites could be linked to serve a variety of transportation modes, including passenger train, local, regional and interstate bus service, park-and-ride facilities, and connections to bicycle paths.

The conceptual plans can be viewed online and comments offered at glenmulti/prefcomment.php
