Is there a plan to make the city more accessible by walking/biking? We have a lot of sidewalks that end abruptly and bike lanes that go nowhere.

Our neighborhoods seem to be on their own little islands. Rec trails are great for families or walking the dog, but they don't allow people to get from A to B. I've seen the master plan documents, but it seems like CR is way behind the times when it comes to transportation and it seems to be getting worse as we expand without a comprehensive plan.

Thank you for sharing your concerns regarding biking and walking in Town. The Town strongly supports being able to bike or walk to destinations in Town and surrounding communities. In 2017, the Transportation Master Plan was updated and is available to review on the Town’s website: http://www.crgov.com/1840/Transportation-Master-Plan. It shows the master planned vision which is our goal, and includes adding bike lanes and multiuse sidepaths (wide sidewalks) to a number of streets throughout Town. Wide sidepaths are wide enough to accommodate people walking or biking, which is especially important for adults or children who do not feel comfortable biking in the roadway. As guided by this plan, the Town is also constantly adding new on-street bike lanes every year as part of the Pavement Maintenance Program, which will add a new striped bike lane where one is planned and where pavement width permits. New connective routes are also added regularly. For example, the East Plum Creek Trail is currently being extended to connect Downtown with Crystal Valley Ranch area. Some roadways, bike lanes and sidewalks are planned to be through or run along undeveloped land and will become the responsibility of the developer when the parcel is developed.

4. Why can't the traffic engineer time the lights so you don't have to stop at every red light. Founders is a mess.
5. Are there more access roads being planned for Cobblestone Ranch? There is currently only two roads and they are getting congested. Additional roads into this development would be helpful.
6. What road construction is happening in Castle Rock?
