Description: 

The projects involves transportation improvements on US 50 between Pueblo, and the vicinity of the Kansas State line in Southeastern Colorado.

This environmental study, known as the US 50 Corridor East project, is built on the 2003 CDOT corridor planning study. This planning study culminated in a community-developed vision for the corridor that called for a safer roadway, on or near the existing US 50, that maintains a reasonable traffic flow and speed for the movement of people and goods along and through the Lower Arkansas Valley, while providing flexibility to accommodate future transportation needs.

During the process of developing this US 50 Corridor East Tier 1 Draft EIS, the project team evaluated alternative corridor locations for future improvements versus the No-Action Alternative (i.e., "no changes or improvements to the current highway alignment") based on the project's purpose and need.

Based on the decisions reached during the Tier 1 process, FHWA and CDOT will proceed with Tier 2 studies for specific projects as funding becomes available.
