The Brighton Boulevard Redevelopment Project will design and construct critical public infrastructure (e.g. cycle track, sidewalks, curb/gutter, on-street parking and more) on Brighton Boulevard, helping establish Brighton Boulevard as a gateway to Denver. Throughout 2015, the project will finalize the engineering design of the upgrades and initial construction activities will begin by the end of 2015. Construction will continue through 2016 and the project will be completed in 2017.
Key focus areas during the 2015 design phase include:
- Access to private properties
- Multi-modal (vehicles, transit, bicycles, pedestrians) Operations
- On-street parking
- Streetscape and urban design
- Drainage and water quality
- Construction approach and phasing
- Community-funded design enhancements
The Brighton Boulevard Redevelopment Project is one of six projects under the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative (NDCC), a coordinated effort created by Mayor Michael B. Hancock to strategically align planning among converging projects in Denver’s Globeville, Elyria, Swansea and River North neighborhoods. The project is also coordinating closely with the River North Arts District (RiNo) on their consideration of forming a neighborhood-wide Business Improvement District (BID) as well as a General Improvement District (GID) specifically focused on funding infrastructure enhancements to the Brighton Boulevard project and future projects on the west side of the neighborhood.
