A study of consistent corridor right-of-way, streetscape design elements, and opportunities for a phased redevelopment over time

Balancing immediate and long-term goals isn’t always easy. But in the case of the Brighton Boulevard Redevelopment, one street got the much-needed immediate facelift and with a design to meet the neighborhood’s long-term goals for future redevelopment.

With accessibility in mind, the project team designed four different zones: the Main Street zone; the Education, Industry, and Development zone; the National Western Center zone; and the Northern Neighborhood zone. Each zone was designed with a short-term phase—working within the existing right-of-way to provide a pedestrian scaled streetscape that included stormwater planters to provide management of both street and sidewalk runoff, while providing comfortable aesthetic improvements—as well as a long-term phase, anticipating future redevelopment and expansion of the right-of-way.

Our team participated in public meetings and presented the challenges and opportunities for the corridor, which allowed us to address the community’s concerns for redevelopment. By working with neighborhood and community members, we accommodated a multi-modal street with dedicated bike paths, controlled turn lanes, and better pedestrian thoroughfares.
