Countywide Collaborative Transportation Planning
The Jefferson County Collaborative Transportation Forum (Jeffco Forum) is a working group of local governments in Jefferson County for prioritizing large-scale transportation projects, and seeking grants and funding to complete these projects. Members include the following jurisdictions:
- City of Arvada
- City of Edgewater
- City of Golden
- City of Lakewood
- City of Littleton
- Jefferson County
- Town of Superior
- City of Westminster
- City of Wheat Ridge
The Forum was created in 2018 by an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA). The IGA establishes an understanding of how transportation planning efforts within boundaries of the county should be conducted in a coordinated manner and how the communities of Jefferson County will facilitate requests for funding from entities including the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), the Regional Transportation District (RTD), and the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG).

In 2018, the Forum began working closely with DRCOG to evaluate and prioritize projects that are eligible for federal funding from the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Calls for grant applications that have a significant impact to the Jefferson County subregion will occur in the first quarter of 2019. All meetings of the Forum are open to the public and the Forum invites applications for funding from qualified agencies.
Jeffco Forum Project Priority List
The Jefferson County Collaborative Transportation Forum developed a list of priority projects in preparation for the DRCOG TIP call for regional and subregional projects. This is an evolving list of projects that may qualify for TIP funding. The list includes total project cost estimates and proposed grant requests. Also shown are CDOT Tier 1 projects within Jefferson County that would be funded by CDOT when and if funding becomes available from state budgets or ballot initiatives.
