On December 15, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners adopted the Weld County Road 49 Access Control Plan (ACP). You can find a copy of the plan on this webpage. If you have any questions about the ACP, please contact Elizabeth Relford, Weld County Transportation Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jim Flesher, Weld County Transportation Planner, at email@example.com.
The goal of the ACP is to preserve the functional integrity (safety, capacity, and mobility) of WCR 49 in order to efficiently move people and goods along the corridor in the safest manner possible.
In order to achieve this goal, the county worked closely with residents, property owners, local government agencies and the business community to develop a detailed, long-range Access Control Plan for WCR 49. The plan evaluated traffic accidents, congestion, and sight distances and made recommendations for improvements, such as the intersection improvements at WCR 22 and WCR 44.
Some ACP objectives include:
* Improve traffic flow
* Reduce traffic conflicts
* Improve traffic safety
* Provide appropriate access to adjacent properties
The WCR 49 ACP scope of work encompassed WCR 49 from US 34 south to I-76 in Hudson. This planning project was a recommendation from the Weld County 2035 Transportation Plan, which recognizes this road as a major travel corridor and truck route, and which was adopted by the Board of County Commissioners in 2011.
The Technical Advisory Committee for the ACP included staff from Kersey, Hudson, Keenesburg, and Weld County. The Policy Advisory Committee consisted of the following elected and appointed officials:
* Barbara Kirkmeyer, Weld County Commissioner
* Neal Pontius, Hudson Mayor
* Danny Kipp, Keenesburg Mayor
* Jay Pier, Kersey Trustee
* Coralie Slusher, Kersey Trustee
* Jason Maxey, Weld County Planning Commissioner
* Robert Grand, Weld County Planning Commissioner
We would like to thank everyone who attended the open house events in 2012 and 2013!
