Does the Transportation Master Plan projected volume of 37,000 vehicles per day fully account for all developments being built out on Crowfoot ?

The Town’s Master Plan traffic forecasts use the Denver Regional Council of Governments regional forecasting model in the projection of traffic. This traffic forecasting model takes planned developments into account that have been provided to DRCOG by each local agency. Given that, the majority, if not all of the planned development along Crowfoot Valley Road has been taken into account in the Town’s Master Plan. In addition to this, the Town was very conservative in the land use assumptions within the Town’s limit in the Master Plan study and assumed full build-out of the Town by 2040. Based on both of these factors, the 37,000 vehicles per day is expected to be a good estimate for future traffic on Crowfoot Valley Road.
