In the Spring of 2020, MURP students Jon Brachna and Gabby Masucci worked for the City of Littleton on the Downtown Streetscape redesign project. In anticipation of a Denver Water infrastructure project, Littleton saw the opportunity to reimage the streetscape of Main Street and Alamo Avenue. The objective of the capstone was to maintain the historic character of both streets, while recommending design alternatives that would improve pedestrian and wheelchair safety, accessibility and alternative uses of space. The students proposed one overall streetscape design and a specific improvement for both streets.
