These improvements will include:
Starting in Fall 2020, the City and County of Denver will begin construction to improve walkability and access along E. Florida Ave. and E. Iowa Ave. As part of the Safe Routes to School Program and the Elevate Bond Program, this project aims to enhance pedestrian, cyclist, and vehicular safety for residents and students traveling to and from school within the Cory Merrill neighborhood. These infrastructure improvements collectively will provide enhanced safety and access while also benefiting the community in many other ways, including traffic calming, safer pedestrian crossings, safer bicycle travel, traffic efficiency, and multi-modal safety.
The Cory Merrill Safe Routes to School Project is one of the first neighborhood sidewalk infill projects in the City and County of Denver. The type and location of safety improvements were selected based on input from the Cory Merrill community as ideal locations to implement pedestrian safety infrastructure facilities.
