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

Construction of missing sidewalk links supports "Pedestrian Policy Plan of the TMP" (Transportation Master Plan) by eliminating breaks and discontinuities in the sidewalk system and ensuring adequate connections to transit.

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

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

Have a missing sidewalk link you'd like city staff to add to the priority lists below? Contact Jenny Godwin, Transportation Planner at 303-441-4934 or godwinj@bouldercolorado.gov.

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