This plan has its roots in two decades of community-led visioning and planning. Denver residents have long expressed a clear desire to transition from a car-centric culture to a future that prioritizes people and the quality of the places where they live, work and play. Our mobility plan will be regularly updated based on community and stakeholder input.
This is a bold investment.
Reinventing our streets to move more people more safely and more efficiently will require major new investments in the system. The City & County of Denver currently spends about $75 million each year on transportation and mobility. To meet our challenges and make meaningful progress towards a reinvented transportation future, we must invest at least $2 billion between now and 2030. With about $1.65 billion in funding already identified, we must close a $350 million gap.
