Project Overview:

The project completes a missing link of sidewalk trail along the west side of Kipling Parkway between Ridge Road and W 58th Ave in Arvada. Constructing the pathway extends the trail system to connect pedestrian and bicycle traffic to area parks, sport facilities, retail shops, and residential neighborhoods.

Why is the City extending the pathway along Kipling Pkwy?

The City of Arvada is committed to completing the city transportation network for all modes of traffic. Kipling Pkwy is a major roadway that handles an average of 33,000 trips daily. To ease congestion and create an inviting atmosphere for travelers, the City is enhancing pedestrian and bicycle connectivity to promote walking, biking, and bus access for local trips to/from neighborhood businesses, parks, and residential areas.

Project Benefits:

Congestion Relief: developing trails allows the public to walk, bike, and bus to local destinations and therefore reduce congestion on regional highways.

Connectivity: constructing the trail completes the missing link and enhances network connectivity to provide safe and efficient travel using the Arvada trail system.

Environment: a a multi-modal transportation corridor promotes transportation alternatives that reduce traffic congestion, energy consumption, and greenhouse gases.

Project Status:

The project is now complete. For more information about the project, please contact:
