The City of Boulder is inviting the community to attend an opening celebration of 13th Street Neighborhood GreenStreet. The event will take place Thursday, Sept. 5, from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., on the multi-use path at Olmsted Park (3170 Broadway) behind the North Boulder Recreation Center.   

Hosted by the City of Boulder and Mayor Suzanne Jones, the event will include a ribbon cutting ceremony and dedication to Al Bartlett, Boulder’s cycling pioneer. After the gathering, the entire community is invited to join in a group walk or bike tour of the GreenStreet.

GreenStreets are an important part of the city’s Low-Stress Walk and Bike Network Plan. These are streets with low-vehicle volumes and speeds that are prioritized for bicycle and pedestrian travel. GreenStreets feature improvements that increase comfort and safety for pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities.

13th Street is a well-used north-south corridor for pedestrians and cyclists that connects key origins and destinations in Boulder. The city has installed new signage, striping and pavement markings to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety and comfort from Iris Avenue to the Boulder Creek Path. The 13th Neighborhood GreenStreet is an early deliverable of the Low-Stress Walk and Bike Network Plan.
