Planning and Environmental Linkage (PEL) Corridor Study of Santa Fe Drive, CDOT Region 1, Denver, CO

    SurvWest provided land survey and mapping services for the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and CDOT PEL study for the Santa Fe corridor. The study was conducted to identify short-term actions and long-term alternatives to create a clear vision for the transportation functions in the Santa Fe corridor. The study was conducted in accordance with the Statewide and Metropolitan Planning Regulation 23 CFR 450. The provisions linking planning and National Environmental Policy Act presented in Section 450.318 and Appendix A of 23 CFR 450 were followed. The findings of the PEL study established the purpose and need, early action items and reasonable alternatives, logical termini and independent utility, and programming priorities, timeframes, and funding were used in updating transportation plans and transportation improvement programs (TIPs).

    The study included development and evaluation of alternatives based on a consideration of purpose and need, geometric layout and access, traffic, planning and environmental factors, the location of communities and other developed areas, and public and agency plans and input. SurvWest provided surveying and mapping services for this project which extends along Santa Fe Boulevard from Alameda Avenue to C-470. SurvWest supplies survey control, boundary ties, DRCOG photography, and digital terrain data.
