Project Introduction and Background
The Town of Estes Park was awarded Safe Routes to School (SRTS) funding via the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) through the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). The SRTS program’s purpose is to enable and encourage children to walk, bike, and roll to and from school by making routes safer, and encouraging healthy and active lifestyles.
The Town of Estes Park’s Graves Avenue Sidewalk and Brodie Avenue sidewalk connector project will include the construction of a continuous sidewalk on one or both sides of Graves Avenue, plus a sidewalk connector from the Brodie Avenue sidewalk to the Elementary School’s parking lot crosswalk. The improvements along Graves Avenue and the Brodie Avenue Sidewalk Connector will increase safety and accessibility and will also provide connectivity with the neighborhood housing on and near Graves Avenue, the schools, and the Estes Valley Community Center.
