Transportation Planning

Planning for future transportation needs is at the forefront of Glenwood Springs planning. There are many planning stages the City must go through to be eligible for funding from the State and Federal governments.

Glenwood Springs Long Range Transportation Plan 2015-2035

The City updated its Long Range Transportation Plan in November of 2015.  The Glenwood Springs Long Range Transportation Plan 2015-2035 outlines the community's vision for future multi-modal network improvements. It includes a detailed list of desired projects and implementation recommendations which is updated annually by the Transportation Commission and City Council.



Garfield County Transportation Plan

The City has integrated the local long range plan into the Garfield County Transportation Plan to address the future transportation needs within Garfield County.

Intermountain Regional Transportation Planning

The City also actively participates in the Intermountain Regional Transportation Planning process which consists of all entities from the 5 mountain counties:
  • Eagle Counties
  • Garfield
  • Lake
  • Pitkin
  • Summit

Statewide Transportation Planning

The Regional Transportation Planning process is then integrated into the State Transportation Plan. The Colorado Department of Transportation's most recent statewide Long Range Transportation Plan is available here.
