Five Points 2018

Project Background

The Five Points neighborhood was selected as the first neighborhood to go through the NTMP Action Plan collaboration process. The neighborhood is just northeast of downtown Denver, spanning from 20th Street and 20th Avenue to the south, to the Platte River and 38th Street to the north, and Downing Street to the east. Five Points ranked highest in the NTMP prioritization model which incorporated the following factors: growth pressure, safety, transportation equity, and multimodal demand.

Project Area


The Five Points Action Plan:

  • Identified and will deliver specific, near-term transportation and mobility enhancement projects;
  • Identified and delivered operational and safety improvements such as daylighting intersections by pulling parking back from the intersection, installing crosswalks, installing signage; and,
  • Identified longer term actions that can be delivered through future projects.

The NTMP collected and gathered community feedback and ideas on neighborhood transportation priorities, issues, and enhancements which informed the neighborhood-scale projects shown on the final report.
