Great news for Berthoud’s walkers, runners, joggers and hopscotchers: the Town’s Pedestrian Master Plan is underway, and will accomplish several necessary steps for sidewalk improvements—in addition to elevating the look and feel of Berthoud streets.
The plan will:
- Help the Town prioritize sidewalk routes that need improvements.
- Include a quote, so the Town can start budgeting and identifying funding sources.
- Address any ADA issues, making sure all sidewalks are accessible for everyone.
The plan will cover all of Berthoud, but the majority of the sidewalk projects will be in the older part of town where the work is most needed.
The Town of Berthoud is collecting data to inform the town’s American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) pedestrian facilities transition plan and a Pedestrian Master Plan.
As part of this planning effort, the town reached out to the public to gather your input about known pedestrian barriers that exist, missing facilities and other recommendations about the pedestrian system. We appreciate everyone who participated and provided their feedback!
