Transportation study survey open through August 8
The city needs your input to help inform the next phase of the project -draft projects within each critical corridor. Participate in the short, 5-step engagement activity today to help rank goals and prioritize trade-offs for future project recommendations.
This is the next step in the City of Colorado Springs’s process to identify the strengths and weakness of our transportation system as part of ConnectCOS, a city-wide visionary transportation study to help meet the evolving needs of this growing community.
If you walk, bicycle, take transit, or drive a vehicle in Colorado Springs the city wants to hear your input about local transportation opportunities and challenges. Please see our previous posts on the Connect COS (Connect COS program launched & Connect COS survey extended) to see how this project has progressed throughout the last year
Residents may visit the project webpage to learn more about the study and to provide feedback.
There have been a lot of changes in Colorado Springs in the last 20 years, which was the last time our city’s primary transportation plan (the Intermodal Transportation Plan) was updated. The City is launching the year long ConnectCOS study as an effort review our current transportation system and develop a plan to ensure an efficient, accessible, safe, and well-connected network for people who drive, walk, bike and take public transit.
PlanCOS, the City’s comprehensive plan that was adopted by City Council in 2019, outlined big ideas to shape the future of our city. ConnectCOS will lay out the next 20 years of transportation planning, infrastructure, and improvements in Colorado Springs, bringing to life the goals, ideas and community values established in PlanCOS.
ConnectCOS is a year-long study that will involve a significant technical analysis, and robust community engagement effort, to identify and prioritize short and long-term transportation projects to ensure that people who live, work and play in Colorado Springs have an opportunity to participate in the study.
