Projects for a Continuous Pedestrian Network

Identifying, prioritizing, and constructing missing sidewalk segments to provide a continuous pedestrian network and ensure a safe walking environment.

Project Overview

Constructing missing sidewalk links supports the city's Pedestrian System Plan, part of the city's Transportation Master Plan. The program supports a sidewalk system that is safe and comfortable, and ensures connections to transit.

Prioritized project lists are updated every year.


Projects are identified by community members and then added to prioritized lists of "small" or "large" missing sidewalk links based on cost.

  • Small projects cost less than $75,000 and are completed using funds from the city's Pedestrian Facilities budget.
  • Large missing sidewalk link projects cost more than $75,000 and are prioritized and assessed for inclusion in the annual budget process.

Have a missing sidewalk link you'd like city staff to add to the priority lists below? Connect with city staff using the contact information at the top of the webpage.

The Transportation and Mobility Department prioritizes the construction of small and large missing sidewalk link projects based on several factors, including existing utility and roadway conditions. View the prioritized lists below.

Before beginning a missing sidewalk link project, the City of Boulder will inform adjacent property owners, residents and interested parties about the upcoming work.
