Location: Carbondale, CO
The Third Street corridor in Carbondale is an important connector and the town saw an opportunity to look at options for improvement. Since the UTA program was already working on site master planning for the Third Street Center they asked if we could assist with identifying ideas for streetscape improvement along Third Streets length.
Carbondale is unique in that along many of the residential street there are open irrigation ditches. This feature is liked by most residents and was concluded as something to remain. Many of the improvements identified were creating better organized on street parking and improving pedestrian crossings at cross streets. In some areas added lighting was needed. Sidewalks needed to be improved in most areas as well.
