Intermodal Transportation Plan
The City of Colorado Springs Intermodal Transportation Plan (ITP) is part of a continuing effort to enhance the transportation system for the City of
The ITP is divided into several sections. Sections 1 through 3 contain an introduction to the plan, an exploration of key trends and public sentiment affecting transportation planning and a statement of goals and objectives for the ITP. Sections 4 through 9 separately address each of five transportation modes - roadways, freight, transportation demand management, transit, bicycles, and pedestrians. Sections 10 and 11 discuss the implications of land use decisions on the transportation system and the specifics of implementing the ITP.
The ITP includes a series of maps that illustrate points made in the text and specify the classification and use of roadways, trails, and other transportation facilities in the City. These maps are attached as a separate document in the ITP Document Library.
Since 2001, several amendments to the ITP have been adopted and are also included in this document library.
