2045 Transportation Plan

The Transportation Plan serves as an integral part in the decision-making process for Weld County staff and elected officials. The primary purpose of this document is to provide technical information that can be used as a basis for formulating transportation related policies. The 2045 Transportation Plan was adopted November 9, 2020. 

Transportation Plan Goals

  • Develop and maintain a safe, efficient roadway network.
  • Encourage partnerships with municipalities, neighboring counties, the Colorado Department of Transportation, North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Organization, Upper Front Range Transportation Planning Region, Denver Regional Council of Governments, Special Districts, and private entities to coordinate transportation improvements, land use strategies, and enhance inter-agency communication.
  • 3. Improve the movement of people and goods by enhancing arterial roadways.
  • 4. Support good land use planning policies by coordinating long-range and transportation planning decisions to ensure new development maintains an adequate level of service by paying its share of improvements to the transportation network.
  • 5. Implement the current transportation plan in a way that considers other transportation and comprehensive plans.
  • 6. Update the capital improvements plan and implement strategies that recognize funding limitations and seeks alternative funding sources.
  • 7. Invest in infrastructure improvements that strengthen the freight transportation corridors to ensure economic vitality.

Functional Classification Map

The Functional Classification Map groups unincorporated Weld County roads into classes (local, collector, and arterial) to help identify where additional right-of-way (ROW) will be required and for measuring setbacks for structures. ROW varies based on the following classifications:

Local roads: 60’ of ROW
Collector roads: 80’ of ROW
Arterial roads: 140’ of ROW

Current road classifications can be viewed on the County's interactive GIS map.
Be sure to select the correct map layer, as seen below.
