On July 27, the University Hills North Community, the University Hills Neighborhood Association, the U-Hills Plaza, Councilwoman Kendra Black, and WalkDenver co-hosted a temporary Vision Zero traffic calming demonstration event at Yale Avenue & S Clermont Drive in Southeast Denver. We set up a median down the center of Yale, curb extensions on Clermont, a sidewalk extension on the westbound side of Yale, and a pop-up bus shelter at the intersection. Our goal was to demonstrate some simple design changes that could improve walkability and connectivity in the area. This intersection is one of the few signalized crossings on Yale located in proximity to homes, transit, and local neighborhood destinations, including grocery stores, restaurants, shopping, and a library. But narrow sidewalks, unsafe vehicle speeds, and short crossing times often discourage residents from walking to nearby amenities. While there is no doubt that significant investments are needed on Yale to improve safety and accessibility, we decided to focus on some smaller, short-term traffic calming ideas that could be implemented at a quicker pace, such as curb extensions near the intersection and a median that could double as a pedestrian refuge.
