Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
Introduction and Scope
The Town of Nederland received a grant for 1.5 million dollars from CDOT’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) in September of 2019. The grant is a mix of state and federal funds that targets multi-modal projects that promote alternative transportation and pedestrian travel. Nederland’s project consists of a sidewalk on West First Street connecting RTD Park-n-Ride with the Visitor’s Center and on Jefferson Street adjacent to the Kathmandu Plaza. The project will also include, a high speed electric vehicle charging station, bike racks, rain garden/planter, and wayfinding signage. As part of the project Staff is working to bury the overhead powerlines in this section of town. Additionally, Staff is collaborating with the Nederland Downtown Development Authority to repave the Visitor’s Center Parking Lot and North Jefferson Street. The design below was approved for submission to CDOT by the Board of Trustees at their regular February 19, 2021 meeting. This design is currently at 30% completion and is still subject to minor changes.

Upcoming Meeting Information
Staff will continue to provide updates as new information is realized. Staff is currently working with Xcel energy on a design for burying power lines and is subject to their scheduling before any other work can begin. Staff is expecting an electrical design at the beginning of April and electrical construction to begin in August. There are no meetings scheduled at this time. Staff will update the BOT when Xcel completes their design.
