Iliff Ave Corridor Study

Project Description

This project looked at the existing concerns and problems within the Iliff Avenue Corridor as it relates to traffic and multi modal transportation needs, and developed long term solutions to the corridor.

Based on citizen input, multi jurisdictional meetings, citizen and business focus groups, and the data obtained from the corridor analysis, ideas and solutions for the corridor were narrowed to a final plan for future implementation.

Public Involvement

Public and agency involvement were essential to the Corridor Study. Three well-attended general public meetings, five community focus group meetings, and multiple stakeholder meetings were held to solicit input on existing transportation issues, alternatives development and screening, and study recommendations. Frequent coordination also occurred with partner and stakeholder agencies, including Southeast Metropolitan Stormwater Authority (SEMSWA), City of Aurora, City and County of Denver, Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), Regional Transportation District (RTD), Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), and Denver Water.
