Transportation Alternatives Program: Roosa Connect
Status: 75% design is complete! Construction for this project will begin in 2019 and end in 2020.

The Roosa Connect project is a proposed 10' sidewalk addition to Roosa Avenue, on the east side of the roadway, from US Highway 160 (south end) to El Paso Street (north end). The City received a $1,185,805 Transportation Alternatives Program grant to complete the project, which will complete 0.82 miles (4,322 feet) of ADA-compliant sidewalks, curb ramps, cross slopes and transit pads along Durango Transit Route 4, bringing the sidewalks and transit stops up to current standards.

Construction for this project will begin in 2019 and end in 2020, with design currently underway. Design reached 75% completion by October 2016. This 2016 Design and Engineering Project is being funded by 2015 Half Cent Sales Tax funds.

Roosa Connect is split into two phases:

Phase 1. Construction of safety-related sidewalk improvements along Roosa Avenue from El Paso Street to 9th Street, bring all curb ramps and transit stops up to current ADA-compliance, and improve connectivity for two Durango Transit Route 4 first- and last-mile connections. The transit stop locations are at Roosa Avenue & Avenida del Sol, and Roosa Avenue & 9th Street. The constructed 10’ sidewalk on the east side of Roosa Avenue and 5’ sidewalk on the west side will provide a shared use path and enhanced separation from motorized vehicles.

Phase 2. Construction of safety-related sidewalk improvements along Roosa Avenue from 9th Street to US Highway 160, bring all curb ramps up to current ADA-compliance, and improve connectivity for Durango Transit Route 4 first- and last-mile connections along US Highway 160. The constructed 10’ sidewalk on the east side of Roosa Avenue will provide a shared use path and enhanced separation from motorized vehicles.
