The Colorado Department of Transportation will host two public meetings on future traffic needs from Pueblo to Pueblo West.
"Traffic congestion and accident rates are expected to increase along Highway 50 between Swallows Road and Baltimore Avenue in the future," said CDOT Project Manager Joe Garcia.
"In anticipation of future community growth, CDOT is conducting a study to better position the state to design and construct transportation improvement projects," said Garcia. "Potentially this section of US 50 and some of the intersections could be improved through added lanes, grade separations or better signal timing. Accident analysis will help determine problem areas that could be addressed should money become available for safety improvements."
The public is invited to give input on two days next month:
Both events are scheduled from 5 to 7:30 p.m. with a presentation at 6 p.m. The same information will be presented during both open houses.
