#StreetFail: Crossing the Quebec Street Slant

Here’s a terrible design failure.

I-70 is a barrier between Stapleton and Northfield. The Quebec Street underpass is supposed to provide a way across, but it only works well if you’re driving. Good luck walking it.

There are other ways across I-70 on foot. You could, for instance, walk a half-hour to cross at Central Park Boulevard. You could also take the winding Sand Creek Greenway if you don’t value your time.

Thanks to Jonathon Stalls for sending in this #StreetFail. Got a picture of something that’s making Denver’s streets better? Worse? Share it on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #SweetStreet or #StreetFail, and we may share it on the blog. You can email me as well.
