Boulder on Thursday will hold an open house for community members to learn about five conceptual design options for 19th Street, as well as other proposed road improvements.

Information about Sumac Avenue Improvements and Fourmile Canyon Creek Greenway projects, along with proposed upgrades to Violet Park, also will be presented, according to a city news release.

The open house will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Crest View Elementary, 1897 Sumac Ave.

The 19th Street Multimodal Improvements Project is meant to improve the travel comfort and safety of current and future pedestrians and bicyclists between Norwood and Sumac avenues, especially for students traveling to nearby schools and for neighbors in the area, the release stated.

The upgrades will include continuous sidewalks, curbs and gutters on both sides of 19th, Americans with Disabilities Act compliant curb access, on-street bike lane infrastructure, traffic calming devices, a larger box culvert at Wonderland Creek and 19th to meet floodplain development permit requirements, and trees and landscaping where possible.
