Project Summary

Transportation Engineering has selected consultant Fehr & Peers to help guide the development of updated Transportation, Transit and Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans. These updates will look at transportation as an entire multi-modal system centered on Loveland, including the regional impacts of jobs, shopping and medical services, focusing in on three key areas:

The current street network in Loveland has over 330 miles of arterial, collector and local streets. The historic core is roughly bounded by First Street, Madison Avenue, Eisenhower Boulevard, and Taft Avenue. The core was fully developed in Loveland’s early history and is mostly laid out in a tight grid system of tree-lined streets that provide many routing options for motorists seeking either local or through travel to their destinations. 

Areas of growth have both suburban and rural characteristics, reflecting the development patterns of the 1970's and beyond, including fewer through streets, more curving roads and cul-de-sacs. The outer area also contains over 35 lakes of varying size and shape, which, when combined with the relative lack of through streets, present many man-made and natural barriers to through travel. These barriers contribute to a lack of continuous arterial streets and limit both north-south and east-west travel in and through the City.

The Effort

The existing plans are full of good information, but the outcome of this effort -- “Connect Loveland” -- needs to be much bigger, a more forward looking document that focuses on Loveland, but includes regional commuting patterns, the needs of all age groups, and rapidly changing technology.”  Dave Klockeman, City Project Manager

The updates will identify the existing systems and networks and future needs to guide policies and capital project development, prioritization and implementation.

The Process

Staff has already begun data gathering on current policies and plans, they will begin reviewing the current street, bike and pedestrian facilities as well as the transit network.

Public outreach will begin in the spring. A schedule of events will be posted in the near future.
