Main Street Improvements Conceptual Design

Paepcke Transit Hub refers to the existing collection of multi-modal transportation options that are grouped close together around Paepcke Park, a critical and central location to Aspen, just outside of the commercial core. In addition to passing pedestrians and bicyclists, the Paepcke Transit Hub includes two WE-cycle stations, a Car To Go station, and the three bus stops by Paepcke Park (Main Street Outbound, Main Street Inbound, and Garmisch Street Inbound).

The Paepcke Transit Hub Improvements Project seeks to improve the safety and function of existing services and to upgrade infrastructure to support emerging technology. This project is about making existing infrastructure safer for all users.

Because safety infrastructure improvements are most effective when they are tied into a united system, the conceptual design looks at this area holistically, proposing a network of cohesive, interconnected improvement measures. Key aspects to the proposed improvements are to update infrastructure to influence safer usage patterns, establish safer connections, and upgrading existing amenities to better accommodate pedestrians, bicyclists, bus users, and motorists.

In the fall of 2019, community members participated in various public input opportunities regarding safety concerns along Paepcke Park in Aspen on Garmisch Street and Main Street. The City of Aspen used this input to develop and guide a conceptual design process aimed at improving safety and user experience for pedestrians, bus riders and motorists at this popular transit area.

UPDATE JULY 2021
Over the past two years, the City of Aspen listened to you and solicited your input regarding safety enhancements and conceptual designs for the Paepcke Transit Hub Improvements Project. The resulting designs will support safety improvements, the function of existing services, and upgrade infrastructure for emerging technology. For implementation, the City decided to divide the project into two phases of construction, the Main Street Improvements and the Garmisch Street Improvements.

In recent months, the City’s Engineering Department developed the final project design and construction documents. We additionally sought contractor bids with the intent to start work on the Main Street Improvements phase later this summer.

Because of the lack of qualified bids, the City of Aspen will postpone moving forward on this project this summer; however, the project team will re-open the project for bid in fall 2021 with the hope of starting construction next spring.
