Dear Ms. Harding:
I am writing to request a 10 foot shoulder be included for the bridge over Spring Creek on Highway 85 north of Greeley.
It is important to have shoulders this size due to the high speed of motorized traffic and the high volume of trucks on the road. Since a foot and a half of the shoulder will be taken up by rumble strips, a ten foot shoulder is necessary to provide a safe path for cyclists.
This route will see increased bicycle traffic in the future as more residential and commercial development takes place. This bridge is designed to last 75 years and CDOT should build safe roads and bridges to accommodate all road users throughout this period of time.
