US 180 Winter Traffic Study
Study Overview
Flagstaff enjoys a tourism boost after abundant snowfalls. The snow attracts visitors eager to ski, sled, and play outdoors. Unfortunately, the visitors that Flagstaff attracts also cause extreme winter traffic congestion along the U.S. 180, the primary route to the ski and snow play areas.

In response to the frustration felt by the local community including neighborhood groups, emergency responders, and area businesses, the Flagstaff Metropolitan Planning Organization (FMPO) is undertaking a study to identify and evaluate solutions to Flagstaff’s winter congestion challenges. The study will recommend implementable immediate, mid-term, and long-term alternatives to ease the peak weekend winter traffic congestion.

Get Involved
FMPO and the study team are asking for your input regarding possible solutions to easing Flagstaff’s winter congestion. A virtual town hall web site will be launched on August 16, 2011 that provides interested individuals the opportunity to submit practical, creative, and resourceful ideas. The virtual town hall is powered by MindMixer which allows the public to generate ideas, help others evolve their ideas, and ultimately support their favorite ones.

To submit your ideas and join in the conversation, go to US 180 Winter Traffic Study website.


For the months of August and September, FMPO and the study team will be seeking input from the public using MindMixer on the issues and opportunities associated with winter congestion, along with ideas of possible solutions. That input will be analyzed and from it, a series of recommendations on how to ease the winter traffic congestion will be drafted. Once drafted, the recommendations will be posted on MindMixer and a public meeting will be held in November 2011 to provide the public with the opportunity to comment on the proposed study recommendations.
