Hampden Avenue Corridor

After a Hampden Corridor Study and public input, the first phase of Hampden improvements were completed in 2019 including medians, new crosswalks and a new light at Verbena. Phase two improvements will include a redesign of the Locust intersection to increase pedestrian safety. Design for this intersection will begin summer 2021. There will also be a new “Southmoor” sign at Monaco. The city is working on a Special Use Permit with Colorado Department of Transportation and hopes to begin construction summer 2021.

Yale Avenue Corridor

  • The Yale Corridor Study looked at safety improvements from Downing to Holly. The study wrapped up in September 2020 with a virtual open house. The draft plan will be available for public review in February 2021. You can view all past reports, summaries and open house videos here.
  • A tunnel connecting the High Line Canal Trail under Yale and Holly is funded through the Elevate Denver Bond. It has not yet been designed. Project timeline is TBD.

Colorado Boulevard Corridor

  • There will be a public meeting for the University Neighborhoods Safer Streets effort spring 2021. DOTI will introduce the public to the projects coming to the area within the next several years (bike/paving projects, sidewalk gap projects, and Colorado/Buchtel bond projects). The immediate focus will be the bike paving projects on Buchtel, west of University and a potential bike lane on High St. 
  • Community members shared their ideas to improve the South Colorado Blvd corridor in 2019. Their ideas will help inform future improvements. View the SoCo Blvd Visioning Infographic(PDF, 699KB)

Evans Avenue Corridor

  • Pedestrian safety improvements to Evans and Colorado have been designed and partially funded, but not scheduled.
  • An Evans Corridor Study has been requested, but not yet funded.
  • The Near Southeast Area Plan(PDF, 17MB) will engage neighbors north and south of Evans to develop a neighborhood plan to guide growth into the future. The plan is part of the citywide Neighborhood Planning Initiative. It is expected to kick-off in 2021.

Bike Lanes & Mobility Projects

The city is installing 125 miles of bikes lanes in Denver to create a connected bike network.

  • Dahlia bike lane from Yale to Iliff is planned to be installed in 2021.
  • Public outreach was conducted in 2019 for the Princeton bike lane. After additional analysis, DOTI recommended changing the original design from a Protected Bike Lane to a Neighborhood Bikeway. Stakeholder meetings took place in 2020. Construction is TBD.

Other Mobility Projects:

  • A signalized crosswalk on Quincy at Syracuse is planned. No start date has been identified.
  • The traffic signals at Yosemite and I-225 will be rebuilt in 2021 to improve safety.
