    The City of Aurora has kicked off the design for a new pedestrian and bicycle bridge across Parker Road, just west of I-225. The bridge will provide a safe and convenient connection between the RTD Nine Mile Rail and Bus Station Park and Ride, adjacent residential and business developments, and a large urban renewal area and redevelopment site (The Point at Nine Mile Station) on the north side of Parker Road. Each end of the bridge will feature stairs with bicycle-friendly wheel troughs, and two glass-enclosed elevators providing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) access. Currently, pedestrians and bicyclists have no direct, safe path for crossing Parker Road, a road that’s driven on daily by 60,000 vehicles. The bridge will provide a safe crossing of the roadway while also providing broader connectivity to regional destinations like Cherry Creek State Park. Design work was recently started, and construction is anticipated for the fall of 2022. The Art in Public Places program has committed funds to enhance the bridge, making it a welcoming and compelling statement for the citizens of Aurora and visitors alike.
