The installation of the Durango, Colorado-based MODSTREET modular parklets is part of Colorado’s Revitalizing Main Streets Program. In March 2021, the state legislature allocated $30 million to this CDOT program. The goal is to implement transport-related projects that will improve safety and yield long-term benefits to community main streets.

A recent survey by the National Restaurant Association found that 84% of all respondents want to continue on-street dining post-pandemic.
