Narrow Sidewalks on Havana

Havana Street is one of the most vital roadways in Aurora. It’s an important commercial, residential and commuter corridor that connects corridor residents and businesses to the surrounding community and other major transportation corridors in the city and region.

The city is launching the Havana Street Corridor Study in response to a renewed emphasis and heightened awareness of safety and mobility for all users along busy corridors, including planning for cars, pedestrians, bicycles and buses. The study is an opportunity to create a vision and plan that recognizes the diverse needs of Aurora’s residents, business owners, visitors and traveling public.

The study will result in a final corridor vision, goals, corridor brand enhancements, land use framework and recommended transportation improvements, and the final report will include phasing, conceptual design, cost estimates and funding strategies for transportation improvements and corridor branding.

Study Area

The study area is located along Havana Street and bounded by Montview Boulevard on the north, Dartmouth Avenue on the south, Dayton Street on the west (generally) and Moline Street on the east. The primary focus will be on the immediate corridor and associated intersections.
