Sumac Avenue Improvements Project

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Boulder Transportation Division is studying Sumac Avenue from Broadway to 19th Street to address various infrastructure needs, including continuous sidewalks, pavement rehabilitation and storm drainage improvements.

The 2019 City of Boulder Transportation Master Plan (TMP) and recently approved Low-Stress Walk and Bike Network prioritize creating walkable and bikeable routes to key destinations in Boulder.

The city has identified this portion of Sumac for near-term project work due to its deteriorating pavement conditions and proximity to Crest View Elementary School. The study will assess multi-modal improvements, review storm drainage needs and gather community input.

    In the fall of 2019, Growing Up Boulder (GUB) consultant, Darcy Kitching, interviewed Crest View Elementary families to better understand about their use of Sumac Avenue. This work built upon previous engagements with Crest View Elementary and Centennial Middle School regarding the 19th Street Multimodal Project. Family input will be considered in the design process from selection of a conceptual alternative to preliminary design. Learn more on GUB's website.

    Thanks to all who attended the Nov. 21st community open house at Crest View Elementary. City staff is reviewing and organizing the feedback we received through comment forms, Sumac Ave Stories and corridor map sticky-notes to inform a series of initial transportation infrastructure design concepts that will be presented at a second community open house (date TBD, mostly likely in February 2020).

    There's still time to share your thoughts on existing conditions, potential improvements, infrastructure preferences, parking, cycling, walking, driving, drainage conditions and your corridor travel experiences on Sumac Ave. Providing online feedback via a map or via a questionnaire.

    Thanks in advance for your feedback!
