4th & 5th Street Design and Improvements

The 4th & 5th Street one-way to two-way feasibility study included alternatives for both an enhanced one-way design as well as a two-way configuration. Both alternatives will meet the project goals of enhancing safety, improving walkability and bike-ability, activating economic development, and optimizing traffic circulation. City Council and the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) are anticipated to decide on which alternative by late Fall 2021. The final design of the selected alternative is proposed for 2022.

4th & 5th Street Feasibility Study

The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and the City of Grand Junction worked collaboratively with Bohannon Huston on a 4th and 5th Street feasibility study. The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of converting 4th and 5th Street to two-way traffic as well as exploring other avenues for creating a more pedestrian-friendly corridor.    

The study will examine current traffic conditions and solicit community feedback to recommend solutions focused on:

  • Improving neighborhood accessibility 
  • Improving pedestrian safety, walkability, and bike-ability
  • Improving economic development
  • Optimizing traffic circulation

The study area limits are from Pitkin Ave (I-70B EB) on the south to North Ave (US Hwy 6) on the north. The study includes a one-way/two-way feasibility assessment and traffic analysis. The feasibility assessment considers safety, traffic analysis, land use and economic conditions, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, parking, and transit.
