In support of the 13th Avenue Multimodal Mobility Study, multiple ideas are in development on several potential changes to 13th Avenue. The initial options (based on community input gathered so far) seek to address key issues, concerns and opportunities that have been shared by many who live, work or go to school in this area. Join us to hear about different options, including wider sidewalks, traffic calming and bike lanes. Through an interactive format, share your thoughts on each of the ideas, which the project team will use to refine and further develop. Some options may reduce current on-street parking, increase current sidewalk widths, impact landscaping within public right-of-way and reduce current automobile travel lane widths.

The city is conducting the 13th Avenue Multimodal Mobility Study to create a community-driven plan to improve safety and mobility for pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers, transit riders and others along the corridor in Aurora. A draft plan will be available in early 2022.

This important corridor connects residents, students and businesses to their neighborhood, city and region and to places like schools, parks, a light rail station, trails, job centers, stores and restaurants.
