Downtown Alleyways

Myrtle Alley Before

The Transit & Mobility task group highlighted downtown alleys as an opportunity for enhanced pedestrian connections. The group suggested the alley network between CSU and Downtown could establish a unique physical link between CSU, Old Town Square and the River District. The Downtown Development Authority initiated several projects to enhance the alleys aesthetically and to stimulate increased economic vitality and use of these spaces.

The West Myrtle Alley is located near Colorado State University and connects to Myrtle Street, College Avenue, Mason Street, and Laurel Street. A pedestrian-only portion was incorporated into the south end which borders the main campus of Colorado State University, creating vibrant and festive spaces on both public and private property. The alley integrates a “shared-street” concept in which pedestrians and vehicles share the same enhanced space. The shared street is a positive compromise that preserves functionality and access for businesses and provides visitors with fun, vibrant and logical connections between downtown neighborhoods and the CSU campus.
