Downtown Denver is expected to see a significant number of vehicle and pedestrian traffic this evening due to multiple events happening at the same time. Avoid the area if possible and plan ahead for significant delays.
The City and County of Denver is home to nearly 3,000 RTD bus stops used by tens of thousands of bus riders every day to access jobs, healthcare and a variety of other destinations. Of these nearly 3,000 stops, many are in need of infrastructure upgrades. This project, as well as future projects that invest in bus stop infrastructure, will address the current needs systemwide and affirm Denver’s commitment to make the city more accessible for all users.
This project represents a regional partnership between the City and County of Denver, RTD, and the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG). In 2020, the city received a federal grant for $200,000 through DRCOG and matched it with $150,000 of city capital funds to improve bus stops in Montbello. City planning staff determined the Montbello neighborhood was an ideal area that would benefit most from these improvements due to high ridership and condition of the stops, among other considerations.
The city will be constructing and upgrading concrete passenger waiting areas at stops, as well as reconstructing sections of sidewalk connecting to the stop in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Construction plans also include repairs to damaged curbs and gutters near the bus stops. Once construction is complete, the city plans to add new benches at nearly half of the stops.
