Colter Street Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Project Goals​​​​​​

​​​​To i​m​prove the safety and mobility for people walking and riding bicycles on Colter Street between 15th Avenue and 20th Street. The planning phase of this project began in 2020 and was completed in 2021 with conceptual ren​derings of potential safety improvements. 

The next phase is the actual design process where specific options will be designed. Due to the large project area, it was split into two phases. In summer 2022, funding was identified to begin design on Phase I of the project, which extends from 15th Avenue to 7th Street. As funding becomes available, design work will begin in a later Phase II of the project, which consist of safety improvements from 7th Street and 20th Street. ​


Project Area

Phase I  Funding has been identified to move this project from the conceptual planning phase into the design phase.

Phase 1 Project Boundaries are from 15th Avenue to 7th Street

Phase II  Funding has not been identified to begin design work on this phase. This page will be updated to indicate funding status as soon as there is a change.

​​Project area for Phase II goes from 7th Street to 20th Street
Conceptual Renderings​

​​The graphics and "fly through" simulation video (shown at bottom of page) for this project were developed in the planning, or pre-design, phase. What you will see below are conceptual ideas of what improvements might be possible to make this area safer and more comfortable for all road users, especially people walking or riding bicycles. As Phase I enters the design phase, additional public meetings will be held to allow community members to influence the design process.

Phase I Segments - The Street Transportation Department has identifi​ed funding to take the pre-design concepts below into the design phase.
