Longmont to Plow Residential Streets on Saturday
Beginning Saturday, Feb. 4, city crews will begin to make one pass through the residential streets. In order to plow one lane through the residential streets the snow crews will postpone clearing most trails and greenways over the weekend, but the work on trails and greenways will resume on Monday. The city crews will work with a contractor beginning early Saturday morning to clear snow from the downtown area. This will entail hauling snow from the core downtown section of the city. For additional information please call the Public Works & Natural Resources Call Center at 303-651-8416. For snow updates visit http://www.ci.longmont.co.us/news/snowplan.htm
RTD Officials to Discuss FasTracks with City Council
RTD will provide an update to the joint City Council/TAB assembly on current costs with various options, allowing City Council and TAB to provide further policy direction on the RTD options on Wednesday, February 8 at 7 pm in the Safety and Justice Center, 225 Kimbark St. Over the past two months, the Regional Transportation District (RTD) has provided information to the entities along the NW Rail corridor on the recent cost increases requested by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad to construct the FasTracks project. The increases have raised the total project costs for NW Rail from just under $900 million a year ago to $1.7 billion (year of expenditure) in the 2012 cost estimates for FasTracks.
