Big Year Ahead for Denver’s Vision Zero Program

In 2018, Denver’s Vision Zero program accomplished much – from the installation of more than 19 miles of bike lanes, four new pedestrian signal crossings and the hiring of four dedicated Vision Zero staff members, to the number of outreach events that began to educate the community and institutionalize a culture of safety. However, with 59 traffic deaths in 2018, it shows there’s more work to be done.

47th & York Pedestrian Bridge

This project falls 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 includes the construction of a bicycle and pedestrian bridge with stairs and ramps crossing over the Union Pacific railroad line, south of the existing crossing at 47th Avenue and York Street. The bridge will be constructed on unoccupied property south of 47th Avenue. Improving this connection and crossing was identified as a top priority and transformative concept in the 2015 Elyria Swansea Neighborhood Plan and the community continues to champion this. The project is a critical mobility improvement focused on improving safe bicycle and pedestrian connections between Elyria and Swansea Neighborhoods, and between Swansea Elementary School and the Valdez-Perry Branch Library.
