Downtown Longmont is excited to be the focus of the below transportation improvements initiatives.
Wayfinding & Placemaking Plans
The Longmont Downtown Development Authority and the City of Longmont commissioned a Wayfinding Plan. This system is intended to create a curate experience throughout downtown and the entire city. The LDDA Board will begin implementing the plans in 2023, starting with installing parking lot identification signs, parking trailblazers and updated kiosks.
Coffman St. Busway Project
As part of the City’s Envision Longmont Plan and the utilization of recently awarded grant funding, the City will begin construction on an Enhanced Multi-Use Corridor in 2023. The project will focus on Coffman Street between 1st and 9th Avenue and is expected to open to the public at the same time Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) starts between Longmont and Boulder. The project seeks to make Coffman Street a world-class, multi-modal corridor to support residents, businesses, visitors, bikes and pedestrians, commuters, the environment, and the City. View flyer.

1st & Main Station Transit Revitalization Plan
In 2012, the City completed a master plan and revitalization study for the 1st & Main Station project near the site of the old flour mill near 1st Avenue and Main Street.
The study examined both short-term and long-range development potential for the site (well in advance of actual rail station construction) and included preparation of transit-oriented development concept plans and market analyses for the area. The plan also examined multi-modal connections to the site, including development of potential alternative bus service options for the City to better serve the site and surrounding areas. At the end of this process, this are was rezoned February 1, 2013, to Mixed Use (103 acres) and Public (2 acres). Read more.
