2040 Transportation Master Plan


This year, we’re embarking on a process to update the existing Arapahoe County Transportation Master Plan with an eye toward 2040. That plan will help inform our ongoing work as well as resources and policies that will help keep you moving for years to come. Plan Maestro de Transporte del Condado de Arapahoe 2040. 

Why Plan?

Arapahoe County is the fastest growing county in Colorado. And why wouldn’t it be? Our cities and communities feature some of the best quality of life our state has to offer. But maintaining that success, and the growth it brings with it, requires careful analysis of our current situation and a focus on what is best for all our residents going forward. It means planning our future together.

As population grows, so does the need for County infrastructure. We heard from you that easing congestion is a top priority you would like the County to addressThe approximately 1,100 lane miles of roads that Arapahoe County maintains and operates are critical pieces of the Denver-metro systemWith growth, and the corresponding additional cars on the road, creating a vision for the County’s transportation network is critical to minimize congestion, provide quality of lifeensure shorter response times in emergency situations across the County, and guide future growth.

What is Transportation Master Planning?

The process of gathering public and stakeholder input to:

  • Discuss transportation issues and generate ideas for opportunity, growth and efficiency
  • Develop a vision and associated goals that guide community growth
  • Identify transportation investment priorities
  • View the 2035 Transportation Plan

How to get involved?

The year-long process began in June 2020 and will conclude with a final plan early summer 2021 with various phases and opportunities for your voice to be heard. Now more than ever, it is critical to connect and help shape the future in creative ways. The safety of our citizens, staff and community partners is of utmost importance. Given social-distancing requirements, most outreach in 2020 will be conducted online
