The Ohio Avenue Multimodal project is the result of several years of collaboration between the City of Gunnison, Western Colorado University, Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), the Federal Highway Administration, the Gunnison Valley Transportation Planning Region (TPR), and community stakeholders. Ohio Avenue was identified as a primary pedestrian and bike route connecting Western Colorado University’s campus to the downtown Gunnison area. Work will begin in July 2023 and is expected to be completed by November 2023.

This project is intended to improve public safety by constructing improvements along Ohio Avenue between North Colorado Street to North Wisconsin, including:

  • An 8-foot, 2 lane cycle track.
  • 5-foot ADA compliant sidewalks with ADA ramps at each intersection.
  • A 4-foot physical barrier to separate motorized and non-motorized traffic, which includes landscaping and irrigation.
  • Ambient & directional lighting, trash receptacles, benches, dog stations, and additional landscaping on each block.
  • Bulbouts and improved cross walks at Hwy 135 and Ohio.
