The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and the City of Grand Junction are working collaboratively with Bohannon Huston on a 4th Street and 5th Street feasibility study. The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of converting 4th Street and 5th Street to two-way traffic as well as exploring other avenues for creating a more pedestrian friendly corridor.
The study will examine current traffic conditions and solicit community feedback to recommend solutions focused on:
Improving neighborhood accessibility
Improving pedestrian safety, walkability, and bikeability
Improving economic development
Optimizing traffic circulation
The study area limits are from Pitkin Ave (I-70B EB) on the south, to North Ave (US Hwy 6) on the north. The study includes a one-way/two-way feasibility assessment and traffic analysis. The feasibility assessment considers safety, traffic analysis, land use and economic conditions, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, parking, and transit.
