Brighton Bicycle, Pedestrian and Multimodal Plan

Brighton is embarking on the very exciting process of developing a citywide Bicycle, Pedestrian and Multimodal Transportation Master Plan. This Plan will update the active transportation vision included in the Brighton Transportation Master Plan. The Bicycle, Pedestrian and Multimodal Transportation Master Plan will envision the future pedestrian and bicycle network, prioritizing effective investments that advance Brighton toward becoming a more comfortable and welcoming place for people walking, rolling, and biking. The plan will guide the city on how and where to strategically make improvements and address gaps in the places people walk and bike, incorporating public input and stakeholder input and national best practices in bicycle and pedestrian planning and design.



The goals and anticipated project outcomes of the Brighton Bicycle, Pedestrian and Multimodal Transportation Master Plan include:

  • A vision and goals for a walkable, bikeable, and multimodal Brighton
  • A map of priority bicycle and pedestrian corridors, with bicycle facility types identified
  • Strategies and performance measures to guide the planning, funding, and implementation of projects
  • Strategies to address bicycle, pedestrian, and multimodal education within community, school district, and City of Brighton departments
  • Recommendations for more efficient uses of existing public right-of-way with regard to providing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure
  • A Capital Improvement Plan
  • A bike share/bike library feasibility analysis
  • Potential new trailhead locations
  • A short-term maintenance and a long-term maintenance plan
  • Strategy for Brighton to achieve a higher designation than the current “Bicycle Friendly Community – Honorable Mention” by the League of American Bicyclists


The project began in January 2023 and is anticipated to be completed by August 2023. The schedule is divided into three distinct phases, including a phase for: Visioning & Existing Conditions Analysis, Plan Development, and refinement of the Final Plan. There will be two milestone opportunities for the public to provide input as part of each major phase of the project: early on as part of the visioning and following development of a Draft Plan. In addition, the project will be guided by multiple stakeholder groups that will include representatives from the Parks & Recreation Advisory Board, Bike Brighton, 27J School District, RTD, Police and School Resource Officers, Parks Maintenance staff, and other groups particularly sensitive to the need to walk/roll and bike around Brighton, including older adults and people with special mobility needs.
