Transportation and Mobility Master Plan Thornton TMP ENG Logo_Transparent Background.png

What is the Transportation and Mobility Master Plan?

The Transportation and Mobility Master Plan (TMMP) is a planning document being developed by the City of Thornton. It will replace the current 2009 Transportation Master Plan as the City’s long-range plan for travel and mobility, guiding future development of transportation-related infrastructure. The City started work on the TMMP in 2020 but paused the process to focus on the COVID 19 pandemic situation. The City will resume work on the TMMP in January 2021.

How can you provide input on the Plan?

The City will resume the planning process in January 2021 with anticipated public outreach at that time. Public input is critical for realizing the vision and goal of this Plan. There will be a variety of opportunities for public input on the transportation system and mobility needs. Check back in January for announcements on future events where you can learn about, and provide feedback on, the Transportation and Mobility Master Plan.

You can also send input and questions directly to Transportation.Plan@thorntonco.gov.

What are the vision and goals of the Plan?

The overall vision is a transportation network and mobility plan that expands transportation options to enable a resident to access all areas of Thornton in a timely manner without using a private vehicle. Thornton desires a holistic multimodal and mobility view, approach and evaluation of current and future transportation needs.

The goal of the Plan is to provide an interconnected multimodal transportation network and mobility plan for all people to access goods, services, residences, and employment and accommodates safely moving people, goods, and services using a variety of modes that includes vehicle, bicycle, pedestrian, bus, shuttle, and passenger rail based on the future land use projections and overall vision for the City.

Who develops the Transportation and Mobility Master Plan?

The Plan is developed by the City in conjunction with consultants. The development of the Plan is informed by City staff, City council, local and regional stakeholders, and members of the public.

Is there a current Transportation and Mobility Master Plan?

The City's current plan is the "Transportation Master Plan for the City of Thornton" which was adopted by City Council Resolution on September 8, 2009 with the Colorado Department of Transportation's "I-25 and Highway 7 Planning, Environmental and Linkages" studies incorporated by City Council Resolution on March 29, 2016. The Transportation Master Plan can be viewed on the links on the right side of this page.
