On July 23, Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods, the Bluebird District, and WalkDenver co-hosted a temporary Vision Zero traffic calming demonstration event during the 11th Annual Tasty Colfax event.

The Colfax & Madison intersection is home to an increasing number of popular restaurants, bars, and other neighborhood destinations and has seen a corresponding increase in pedestrian traffic in recent years. Anyone familiar with trying to navigate Colfax outside of a car knows how difficult and at times dangerous it can be.

With a Bus Rapid Transit project being planned for Colfax that would include adding more safe crossing locations, the pop-up traffic calming demonstration was a great opportunity to reimagine Colfax as a more people-friendly street in the future.
