Pop-up traffic calming coming to Federal Boulevard in northwest Denver!

The Regis University Community Council and WalkDenver are teaming up once again to bring attention to the urgent safety improvements needed on Federal Boulevard in northwest Denver. We will be hosting a “pop-up” demonstration event at Federal Blvd and W 50th Ave to reduce speeding, improve pedestrian and bicycle connectivity, and make Federal a safer and more pleasant street to travel on.

This pop-up demonstration is a one-day event that will demonstrate street design elements such as curb extensions, shorter pedestrian crossings, protected bike lanes, and bus shelters to show how easy it is to make changes to the street that would make the neighborhood safer and more inviting for people to walk, bike, and take transit. This project is supported by a grant from the AARP Livable Communities Challenge.

9:00am to 2:00pm
Intersection of Federal Blvd & W 50th Ave

Call for volunteers!

We need plenty of volunteers to make this pop-up happen! We are looking for volunteers on the day of the pop-up to help set up, tear down, and monitor the event. We also need volunteers to help collect data a week before the event. For the complete list of volunteer opportunities and to sign up, visit bit.ly/federal-volunteer. You can also help us spread the word about this event by sharing this flyer [PDF] and the event Facebook page!

Slow City: One Day in Denver was a collaborative project led by our partners at Walk2Connect. On April 26, 2014, 27 people walked 13.5 miles across the city of Denver in search of experiences that fuel the yearning for a slow city. A slow city where people get out of their cars and connect with the delightful and gritty nuances that make Denver home. And, where people travel at a speed where they can connect with their environment and one another.

Our project was part of the larger One Day in Denver city-wide, participatory media event. The resulting media will be showcased in an interactive geo-tagged archive and a TV series on the future of the American city.
