Otak, Inc., an award-winning engineering, urban design, architecture, planning, and project management firm, announced it has been selected by Boulder County Public Works to provide design services for the 120th Street Widening Design Project in Boulder County, Colorado. The 1.2 mile stretch of 120th Street, between Overlook Drive and Dillon Road, links the City of Lafayette with the City and County of Broomfield. The road is one of Boulder County’s original roads and has not been improved in decades.
Otak’s team, led by Christine (Chris) Bisio, P.E., Colorado Region Manager, will offer design alternatives and then prepare final design and construction documents to include through lanes, shoulders, and bicycle/pedestrian connections. The design will also highlight improvements to grades, sight distances, drainage facilities, and access to adjacent properties.
Commuter vehicle and industrial truck traffic are growing on the street and its narrow lanes, lack of shoulders, and impaired sightlines make street improvements critical. Otak plans to increase safety, create better traffic flow, and enhance connectivity.
The project, tentatively scheduled to be completed by September 2021, will add to Otak’s portfolio of civic projects and 25-year history serving Boulder County Public Works.
