As Wellington grows, a larger demand is placed on the highway. With limited right of way, this introduces a challenge of maintaining highway mobility in a Main Street setting.

An Access Control Plan with short- and long-term access recommendations will guide CDOT and the Town of Wellington during future access requests and changes. The ACP and operations analysis will also look at the short- and long-term transportation needs of CO 1 and identify and prioritize short-, mid-, and long-term improvements, including an option to modify the striping layout on CO 1 in Wellington.

Where : Leeper Center, 3800 Wilson Avenue, Wellington

Date : Thursday, Nov. 15

Time : 4-7 p.m.
