Colorado Springs Urban Intervention presented a variety of images and the time lapse video from Better Block Pikes Peak at the Fort Carson Garrison Sustainability Breakfast on November 14, 2012. The video is shown below, which shows the quantity of people who gathered and meandered through the temporary median created during Better Block Pikes Peak on Pikes Peak Avenue between Nevada and Tejon.
Better Block Pikes Peak occurred as the group’s first urban intervention experimenting with the public right-of-way in Downtown Colorado Springs. Our findings were showed a 5-6 mph reduction of velocities during BBPP along with increased volumes. Also noticeable in the video is the great turnover of parking spaces. Actual parking counts were observed and documented by the City of Colorado Springs. Data will be made available soon here for parking, velocities, and volumes for the day following, day of, and the day prior to Better Block Pikes Peak.
