    Jefferson County Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans Bikers In Jeffco

    The Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans were adopted by the Jefferson County Planning Commission in June of 2012. These plans are designed to serve as the blueprint for making improvements to the County’s bicycle and pedestrian network. The existing multimodal transportation system will be enhanced through the implementation of safe and convenient on-street and off-street facilities.  

    These planning processes utilized a regional approach that focuses on the implementation of bicycle and pedestrian accommodations that are continuous and consistent throughout the cities, towns, and unincorporated areas of Jefferson County. A more extensive bicycle and pedestrian network will help the County achieve its goal of increasing the number of bike and walk trips.  

    Jefferson County Wayfinding Master Plan  Jeffco Wayfinding Sign

    This Plan provides a clear visual language and universal graphic standard that guides residents and visitors - who are on foot, biking, or using transit - to and from their destinations using on-street routes (not intended to be for recreational, off road, or mountain biking facilities). This project concluded in winter 2016. Wayfinding sign installation will be ongoing beginning in summer 2017. Please contact Yelena Onnen for a copy of this Plan. 


    Evergreen Trails Master Plan   Evergreen Trails

    Finalized in December 2015, the Evergreen Trails Master Plan is a grant-funded project to establish the vision of a cohesive trail network in the core of the Evergreen community. The Plan details a network of trails and on-street bicycle and pedestrian facilities that links Evergreen’s parks, open space, schools, and community assets. While the Plan is not a county-adopted planning document, it is a community-vetted reference that prioritizes near-term and long-term phased implementation of recommended improvement projects to increase mobility and recreational options and to improve access, safety and comfort for the community.
