Timberline Road Widening - Stetson Creek to Trilby
Continued growth in southeast Fort Collins has led to increased traffic on Timberline Road, which is an arterial road in the city. Timberline Road is a major thoroughfare for Fort Collins residents, and serves as a significant regional connection for Northern Colorado communities.
Widening of Timberline to Trilby Road is part of the City’s Master Street Plan and will reduce congestion, improve safety, and enhance bike and pedestrian connections along the corridor.
Project Description and Goals
Timberline Road will be widened to four lanes (two in each direction) from Stetson Creek Drive to Trilby Road. Planned improvements include intersection improvements at Kechter Road, Zephyr Road, and Trilby Road; multi-modal accommodations; raised medians; access control; landscaping improvements; and roadway improvements.
This project serves to build upon the development improvements that have been completed along the corridor. This project will improve safety, reduce congestion, and provide improved accommodations for alternate travel modes.
As of summer 2020, this project is currently in design and right-of-way stages.
Construction is planned to begin in 2021.
This project is estimated to cost around $5 million. Funding comes from the Transportation Expansion Capital Fee fund, developer contributions, and federal funds.
