Roosa Connect: Transportation Alternatives Program

Pedestrians and cyclists cross Roosa Avenue

Roosa Avenue Connect Project

The Roosa Connect project is creating pedestrian and cycle facilities along and across Roosa Avenue, from 9th Street (south end) to El Paso Street (north end).

Current Status

The City is redesigning the plans by converting the 10-foot shared use path to a 6-foot sidewalk and adding a southbound cycle track back into the design. The design plans are also being prepared for Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) review and are anticipated for completion in early spring 2024. A final public meeting is anticipated for winter 2024.
