Bicycle and Pedestrian Infrastructure

Bicycle Infrastructure

The Bicycle Plan (PDF) was adopted by the Jefferson County Planning Commission in 2022. The plan was designed to serve as the blueprint for making improvements to the county’s bicycle network. The existing multi-modal transportation system will be enhanced through the implementation of safe and convenient on-street and off-street facilities. These planning processes utilized a regional approach that focuses on the implementation of bicycle accommodations that are continuous and consistent throughout the cities, towns, and unincorporated areas of Jefferson County. A more extensive bicycle network will help the county achieve its goal of increasing the number of bike and walk trips.

Pedestrian Infrastructure

Please reference the Major Thoroughfare Plan for Roadway Templates; roadways assigned a Street Template have or are planned to have sidewalks.

Evergreen Trails Master Plan

Finalized in December 2015, the Evergreen Trails Master Plan (PDF) is a grant-funded project to establish the vision of a cohesive trail network in the core of the Evergreen community. The Plan details a network of trails and on-street bicycle and pedestrian facilities that links Evergreen’s parks, open space, schools, and community assets. While the Plan is not a county-adopted planning document, it is a community-vetted reference that prioritizes near-term and long-term phased implementation of recommended improvement projects to increase mobility and recreational options and to improve access, safety and comfort for the community.

Jefferson County Regional Bikeways Wayfinding Guide

Completed in 2016, the JeffCo Regional Bikeways Wayfinding Guide establishes a clear visual language and universal graphic standard to guide residents and visitors along regional bikeways and to destinations. Through clear and consistent messaging and placement, this Guide will create seamless navigation along on- and off-street (shared use paths) regional bikeways and to destinations for those walking and wheeling. Wayfinding sign installation will be ongoing.
