Weld County Road 74 (Collins Street) Access Control Plan

Roads generally serve two purposes – 1) mobility for people and freight and 2) access to adjoining properties. The purpose of the County Road 74 Access Control Plan (ACP) is to maintain and enhance safety and mobility while also providing reasonable access to adjoining properties as growth and development occur over time. Safety is the main reason for managing access on the corridor.
