Speer Leetsdale Mobility Plan: Denver, Colorado
City and County of Denver
Economic Benefits of Transit, Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements
The City and County of Denver’s Speer/Leetsdale Mobility Study examined transportation connectivity and operational needs for travel modes within the Speer/Leetsdale Corridor — a prominent travel route for Denver residents connecting people to I-25 to the west and to I-225 to the southeast. The study evaluated different methods and modes, including driving, walking, biking, and public transit.
ArLand examined the transit literature and outlined the potential economic benefits of City investments in bus rapid transit, enhanced pedestrian and bicycle access, and streetscape enhancement, particularly to the Leetsdale portion of the corridor.
