To transform College Avenue into a "world class” street.
College Avenue is the most traveled thoroughfare in the City of Fort Collins and the majority of the street design is over 50 years old. Recognizing College Avenue needs an update, the City set out to identify the vision for redevelopment along the corridor. In October 2013, the Midtown Plan was adopted by the City Council outlining broad policies for the future of College Avenue. Midtown in Motion marked the launch of the second phase of transforming College Avenue between Prospect and Harmony Roads, including the frontage roads and connections to the new MAX stations. Among the goals of the Midtown in Motion plan were to develop design concepts that increase mobility, safety and transform College Avenue into a "world class" street.
City Council adopted the Midtown in Motion study in October 2014. The final report and associated appendices are available for download (see side bar to the right). The City of Fort Collins has completed this design plan for College Avenue called Midtown in Motion. The limits of this plan are College Avenue from Prospect Road to Harmony Road. The design plan addresses College Avenue, the adjacent frontage roads, and connections to the Mason Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) stations. Midtown in Motion is an implementation item stemming from the City of Fort Collins' Transportation Master Plan and the Midtown Plan.
