The Regional Transportation District will hold public meetings next week to seek input and provide updates on implementing bus rapid transit (BRT) service on Colo. 119 between Boulder and Longmont.

Topics to be covered include the proposed BRT route and frequency options, and roadway improvements, such as bus-on-shoulder, bypass lanes and BRT/managed lanes to reduce travel time. The Colorado Department of Transportation also will present information about the proposed bikeway project along the Diagonal Highway.

A consultant team, led by Parsons Transportation Group, is addressing the growing congestion and travel demand in the corridor, environmental impacts, multimodal access, transit reliability and corridor transit travel time, among other criteria, according to a news release.

Meetings will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on/at:

• Monday in the Commissioners‘ Hearing Room at the Boulder County Courthouse, 1325 Pearl St. in Boulder.

• Feb. 6 in rooms A and B at the Longmont Public Library, 409 Fourth Ave.

• Feb. 7 at Left Hand Grange, 195 Second Ave. in Niwot.

Detailed information about the proposed project and a questionnaire are available at . The results of the questionnaire and other feedback will give RTD insights on how to improve bus routes, integrate pedestrian and bicycle mobility, and frequency of service, according to the news release. The questionnaire will be open until Jan. 31.
