You reimagined
Boulder Highway

Let us know what you think

Project Recap

When Boulder Highway was constructed in 1931, the area was largely rural. Today, this area has grown to tens of thousands of houses, commercial lots, transit riders, and daily vehicles. This growth has caused an increase in traffic for vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians, but also an increase in pedestrian injuries and deaths.

With your help, we have re-imagined Boulder Highway to accommodate growth while improving safety, and setting a scalable foundation for future enhancements. From Charleston Boulevard to Wagon Wheel Drive, learn about the Reimagined Boulder Highway.

Center-Running Transit

Sidewalks

Mid-Block Crossings

Street Lighting

Dual Cycle Tracks

Access Lanes

Linear Parks

Early Action Items

0 - 2 Years | Estimated Cost: $16M

The first phase of implementation includes those items that can be installed relatively quickly and at low cost, while creating a large safety and mobility benefit for the corridor.

Temporary Installations
Striping, fencing and other temporary materials to begin building out the concept

Improved Lighting
Enhanced street and pedestrian lighting for improved visibility

Multi-Modal Lane
Exclusive lanes for transit, bicycles and right-turning traffic

Access Lanes
Low-speed business access lanes to driveways and businesses separated from mainline traffic.

Phase 1: Complete Streets

2 - 5 Years | Estimated Cost: $85-90M

In the Complete Streets phase, sidewalks are widened, jurisdictions determine whether the pedestrian area will include linear parks or a low-speed access lane, and improved lighting in updated areas are added.

Improved Lighting
Enhanced street and pedestrian lighting for improved visibility

Linear Park
Open space greenways that act as buffers between the mainline roadway and the biking and pedestrian spaces.

Sidewalks
Widen sidewalks to increase pedestrian access and improve comfort and safety

Mid-Block Crossings
Increased number of pedestrian crossings that include flashers, median refuge areas and convenient spacing.

Access Lanes
Low-speed business access lanes to driveways and businesses separated from mainline traffic.

Phase 2: Ultimate

Option 1 | 5+ Years | Estimated Cost: $40M

This is the final phase of the concept, bringing the vision to completion.

Dual Cycle Tracks
Multi-directional cycle tracks on each side of the roadway providing improved access for cyclists along the length of the roadway.

Linear Park
Open space greenways that act as buffers between the mainline roadway and the biking and pedestrian spaces.

Center-Running Transit
Dedicated transit lanes and stops are moved to the center of the roadway to improve pedestrian access.

Access Lanes
Low-speed business access lanes to driveways and businesses separated from mainline traffic.
