Over the past several decades, Denver has emerged as one of the most dynamic cities in the mountain region. It has become a hub of regional activity, while successfully implementing several significant sustainability and livability initiatives.

Shepherding the city-wide transformation are talented agency staff and engaged community stakeholders. Their challenge with Brighton Boulevard is to reconcile its role as a major artery into downtown Denver, while transforming it into a street that supports the creation of a livable community.

The Federal Highway Administration, along with the Project for Public Spaces and the Street Plans Collaborative, selected Denver to be one of four CSS Champions, and receive technical assistance in applying the CSS approach to create a vision that meet's the right transportation needs for the corridor, while catalyzing the transformation of Brighton Boulevard with short, medium, and long-term steps. The Denver CSS Champions report can be downloaded here.
