Northeast Area Transportation Study (NEATS)

Northeast Area Transportation Study (NEATS)

Transportation studies of the northeast area of Aurora have been conducted since 1999. Existing and planned development in this area continues to evolve, and it is important for transportation infrastructure plans to reflect the projected area needs. The city of Aurora uses the NEATS to provide more insight into systems level multimodal transportation facility needs now and into the future. NEATS recommendations support Aurora’s comprehensive planning efforts.

Study Area
The study area was principally focused in two areas: 1) the area between DIA’s southern boundary, I-70, Picadilly Road and Schumaker Road and bounded by 70th Avenue, 56th Avenue, Picadilly Road and Dunkirk Road was studied, and 2) the area situated to the south between I-70, Jewell Avenue, Picadilly Road and Watkins Road. The study area is shown below.

- Accounted for approved development plans, pending and expected development proposals, and overall transportation needs;
- Identified needed near, mid-, and long-term transportation facilities and programs; and
- Included a stakeholder outreach process.

NEATS Refresh Final Report
The final report is available in two formats.
Final report with some 11" x 17" pages
Final report with 8.5" x 11" pages
