I ♥ Traffic

[ 0 ] October 7, 2016 |


Nobody likes a complainer – especially when the person doing the complaining lives in an area filled with beautiful parks & open space, well-manicured trails, nice people, friendly dogs and only well-behaved kids. I don’t want to be the complainer responsible for so much eye rolling, but seriously, am I the only one frustrated with traffic that is only exacerbated by the many, many miles of road construction/improvement? I suspect not.

Fortunately, there is help! Did you know the City of Fort Collins has a page dedicated to providing live information on traffic conditions? When you have a moment, check out www.fcgov.com/fctrip/.  Here you’ll find an interactive map that shows road work being completed and lane closures throughout Fort Collins. The map even includes links to (by my count) 26 live traffic cameras throughout town.

While not as pressing, the City of Fort Collins also has a page that details their Street Maintenance Plan. At this page (http://www.fcgov.com/streets/smp.php), you’ll find links to all planned projects, a weekly schedule and more.

And for our friends farther south, the City of Loveland also provides helpful info that will help with your traffic frustrations. At their “Cone Zone” page, http://www.ci.loveland.co.us/index.aspx?page=2340, the City of Loveland provides us with a detailed look at road work/closures a week at a time.

Road work and construction are one cost of living in a thriving, growing city, but know there are resources to help us all manage the challenges.
