Boulder County Transportation, in partnership with the Colorado Department of Transportation, is planning to reconstruct the intersection of US 287 and Isabelle Road. Construction is currently anticipated for 2021.
Widening of Isabelle Road from 109th Street (Town of Erie) to 800 feet west of US 287.
Stripe new buffered bike lanes both east and west on Isabelle Road across the intersection
Lengthen the existing turn lanes on Isabelle Road to reduce conflicts for waiting vehicles
Add dual left-turn lanes for westbound traffic
Replace existing traffic signals with new poles on raised islands
Add pedestrian crossings on all four corners
Install new street lights to improve visiability
Realign the Isabelle Road and 109th Street intersection to improve sight distance for both southbound and westbound traffic
Construct new wetlands northeast of the intersection to mitigate project impacts and improve habitat

Boulder County will host a project open house to provide the public with an opportunity to review preliminary plans, ask questions, and provide comments.
