Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan
The City of Grand Junction has initiated an effort to create the City’s first Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan and update the existing Transportation Engineering Design Standards.
Project Overview
Summary
The City of Grand Junction is embarking on the very exciting process of developing the City’s first citywide Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan. The Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan will envision the future pedestrian and bicycle network, prioritizing effective investments that will establish Grand Junction as a comfortable and welcoming place for people walking, rolling, and biking. The plan will guide the City on how and where to strategically make improvements and address gaps in the places people walk and bike, incorporating national best practices in bicycle and pedestrian planning and design. This plan will also provide concrete, actionable guidance for the City to better implement its existing Complete Streets Policy.

Check out the timeline and project documents, be sure to participate in the online survey, and then leave any additional comments you have in the comment box below! All comments received on GJSpeaks will be shared with City Council. For more information, visit the City's website.

The Lincoln Park event was very poorly promoted. Disappointing to read a cover story in the Sentinel after the fact instead of before the event.

The Northeast corner of Orchard/28 1/4 RD is unsafe for wheelchair users. The slope of the wheelchair ramps are extreme when rounding the corner on the sidewalk, causing my chair to tip sideways. The bike lane coming down 28 1/4 Rd. suddenly jumps over a lane when crossing Orchard, and is also unsafe.

I would love to see a pedestrian and cycling overpass/underpass across 12th to CMU. It’s such a congested area with a history of accidents, it could be a practical and potentially beautiful solution to this problem!

On Redlands, South Broadway has no shoulder. Bicyclists are allowed to use a full lane. The law requires a 3’ buffer. How does someone driving a full sized pickup or SUV leave a 3’ space if cyclists are using a full lane? Do the math.

As a firefighter for the city it would be great to see improvements made to result in lowering our call volume of avoidable accidents. My wife works at SMH and is also currently attending CMU, both of which are popular places for these accidents to occur. Getting a call at either location always makes me nervous that she is potentially who was hit. I believe that raised crosswalks similar to 1st St would prevent these accidents from being as frequent. 7th St from Patterson to Bookcliff, and 12th St from Orchard to North Ave I believe are the worst and would benefit from these.
