National Renewable Energy Laboratory Shuttle Service to Regional Transportation District Hubs
CX(s) Applied: B1.32
Date: 04/05/2010

In May 2008, a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) determination was signed for the Final Supplemental to the Final Site-Wide Environmental Assessment of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL) South Table Mountain Complex (STMC), supported by the 2008 NREL South Table Mountain Traffic Mitigation Action Plan and NREL South Table Mountain Traffic Impact Study. The Department of Energy (DOE)/(Environmental Assessment (EA)-1440-S-1 and Traffic Mitigation Action Plan identified expanding Regional Transportation District (RTD) routes to NREL to mitigate traffic impacts. This NEPA determination includes designed routes 10 NREL from two RTD hubs. These routes include RTD transportation at the Cold Spring park-n-Ride at 6th and Simms, and the Applewood Transfer Center at 38th and Younfield to and from NREL facilities at Golden Hill, Denver West Office Park, and the South Table Mountain Site. This proposed project is to develop, design, and implement new RTD routes. This proposal comprises mitigation measures identified in the 2008 NREL South Table Mountain Traffic Mitigation Action Plan in support of DOE/EA?1440-S-1. Additionally, Categorical Exclusion B1.32 can be used to adjust traffic flows.
