Calls for Projects

Safer Main Streets

DRCOG, in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) Region 1, has developed the Safer Main Streets Initiative in 2020. This program was developed to support infrastructure projects that improve safety and accessibility along urban arterials (non-freeway corridors in the Denver Metro area) especially for vulnerable users who depend on a reliable urban street network, such as pedestrians, bikers, motorcyclists, transit users, the elderly, and those with disabilities. The projects submitted for review must be within Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson, and SW Weld counties- consistent with both CDOT and DRCOG’s Vision Zero efforts. Please click here to learn more.
