On Saturday, April 27, 2019, Regis University Community Council and WalkDenver teamed up once again to bring attention to the urgent safety improvements needed on Federal Boulevard in northwest Denver. We hosted a “pop-up” demonstration event at Federal Blvd and W 50th Ave to reduce speeding, improve pedestrian and bicycle connectivity, and make Federal a safer and more pleasant street to travel on.
This pop-up demonstration was a one-day event that demonstrated street design elements such as curb extensions, shorter pedestrian crossings, protected bike lanes, and bus shelters to show how easy it is to make changes to the street that would make the neighborhood safer and more inviting for people to walk, bike, and take transit. This project is supported by a grant from the AARP Livable Communities Challenge. Read the final report for this project at the WalkDenver website.
