The Intermountain Transportation Planning Region has begun the process of updating its regional transportation plan as part of a statewide effort to update the 2030 Colorado Statewide Transportation Plan. The Colorado Department of Transportation has brought in LCS Transportation Consultants Inc. as the lead consultant to help the Intermountain Regional Planning Commission prepare the 2035 regional and statewide transportation plan updates. The Regional Transportation Forum is scheduled from 4-7 p.m. Oct. 5, in the Garfield County Commissioners’ Room located at 108 Eighth St. in Glenwood Springs. An important component of the forum and the 2035 plan update process is the identification of key issues occurring in the Intermountain Transportation Planning Region that may affect transportation priorities. It is important to note that at this phase of the update, issues and trends, and not specific projects, are of most concern. The issues and trends will be used to develop future transportation priorities.Please join us in discussing key issues and emerging trends that you believe are important considerations in developing a safe, efficient and effective transportation system for the Intermountain Transportation Planning Region. Some of the issues and trends used to develop future transportation priorities may include commuting patterns, changes in the employment, driving forces in the economy or local/ regional transportation system issues.For more information about this forum, alternative transportation, Commuter Club or other transportation issues, please call 384-6437, e-mail try@ci.glenwood-springs.co.us or visit http://www.ci.glenwood-springs.co.us and click on Transportation.
