What are the boundaries of the study area?

    As shown on the map on the main project web page, the section of 13th Avenue being examined for this study extends from the intersection of 12th & Yosemite Avenue on the west (the boundary between Denver and Aurora) to the intersection of 12th Avenue and the Highline Canal Trail (just beyond Chambers Road) on the east.

    Why is the city conducting this study?

    13th Avenue is an important corridor for the Aurora community. It connects residents, students and businesses to their neighborhood, city, and region. People move along and across 13th Avenue in many different ways such as taking a bus, walking, bicycling, and driving to access a variety of destinations including schools, parks, light rail stations, trails, employment centers, and retail.


    The 13th Avenue Multimodal Mobility Study builds on previous planning work and community engagement to understand the mobility needs of the project area community today. The study will also identify future infrastructure improvements to make it easier, safer, and more comfortable for people to walk, bike, ride transit, and drive.

    What kind of public outreach has been conducted on this project so far?

    The first phase of public outreach was completed in June 2021.  View the recording of the June 30, 2021, virtual public meeting in English and Spanish. Review the public meeting presentation and a summary of public meeting questions and answers.  Prior to the public meeting, the project team sought input from the project's Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) made up of staff from the city of Aurora, Denver, RTD and DRCOG, as well as the project's Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) composed of local stakeholders representing nearby neighborhoods, employers, schools and community-serving organizations. View the recording of the first SAC meeting.

    As part of the first phase of public outreach, a survey and online mapping exercise was made available to the public. View the map comments. Public meeting and survey notices were delivered by flier, various city of Aurora newsletters, social media postings, press releases and AuroraTV.

    The second phase of public input was completed in the fall. A second TAC and SAC meeting were held Sept. 28, 2021 and Sept. 30, 2021, respectively, to introduce and solicit feedback on four project alternatives. 

    A Family Friendly Streets Event was held from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 5, 2021 pm to showcase and collect community input on several potential improvements for 13th Avenue, including widened sidewalks, standard bike lanes, separated bike lanes, and crosswalks. A virtual community meeting took place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 7  to present the same four project alternatives and solicit participant feedback through small group discussions and four question and answer polls.
