Stolfus recently attended the FHWA’s Localized Bottleneck Reduction Program Summit in Lakewood, CO. The FHWA’s Localized Bottleneck Reduction (LBR) Program supports outreach to transportation professionals on how to incorporate low-cost, quick turnaround solutions to “chokepoint” problems. The summit was an overview of the national perspective, successful case studies of sample projects, and case study programs from other states. CDOT representatives also provided an overview of where Colorado is today and where we are headed. There was also a segment devoted to recent innovative alternative solutions, such as Continuous Flow Intersections (CFIs), Displaced Left Turn (DLT) intersections, and Diverging Diamond Interchanges.
Currently, Stolfus is participating in CDOT’s COBRA (Colorado Bottleneck Reduction Assessment) program by providing assessments at various locations as part of our NPS Traffic Engineering contract.
