Pedestrians are a fundamental part of every transportation network – it’s the most basic form of mobility and an important priority for the City and County of Denver.

People walk every day on their way to work, to shop, and while enjoying all of the different attractions in the Mile High City. Denver’s Pedestrian Program, part of Denver Public Works, helps plan and build multi-modal improvements to our roadways and neighborhoods to ensure that walking is a safe and easy mobility choice for all residents and visitors.


The Elevate Denver Bond Program is a 10-year, $937 million general obligation bond approved by voters in 2017 to enhance the City and County of Denver by providing critical citywide improvements to the infrastructure that defines Denver — our roads and sidewalks, parks and playgrounds, libraries and museums. 

Whether you are walking, driving, biking or taking the bus, nearly half of the 460 Elevate Denver projects will focus on making our streets safer and more efficient for everyone.

  • Repave high traffic roads and repair and replace outdated bridges.
  • Improve intersections and build sidewalks throughout Denver to create new connections among neighborhoods, bus stops, and rail stations.
  • Coordinate with other planned city work to accelerate delivery to Denver residents.


After three years of community engagement, planning and public review involving thousands of residents, it's time for the draft Denveright plans to move through the final legislative review process. This process will culminate with City Council public hearings and votes on Comprehensive Plan 2040, Blueprint Denver and Game Plan for a Healthy City. See key dates and next steps
