Graves Avenue Safe Routes to School in the Town of Estes Park

We need YOUR help to design the safest route to school for your children!

The Virtual Open House is now closed. Thank you for your participation.

We received many thoughtful and helpful comments that guided our designs – want to know what we heard? Head over to the Community Survey Results page.

In addition to the virtual open house, two in-person public meetings were held to present the options in both English and Spanish. Public had the opportunity for Q&A and to submit their comments and vote for their favorite option.

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.
