DOTI is committed to implementing a network of better bike facilities in our city that make it safer, more comfortable and viable for people to ride bikes, and to creating a bike network that connects people to the places they want to go.
Annually, DOTI efficiently coordinates the installation of bikeways recommended in the Denver Moves: Bicycles Program with annual paving activities. DOTI intends to implement bike lanes in coordination with street repaving efforts, which are scheduled to occur between April and October 2021. Registered Neighborhood Organizations (RNOs) will receive information by email, and flyers will be delivered to properties along the corridor in advance of the repaving work, to notify homeowners and businesses of the changes on the roadway that they will see following paving.
A virtual meeting for the Globeville Area Bike Mobility Projects including E 51st, E 45th, and N Lincoln St. was held February 25, 2021 and the meeting video can be seen below.
Study Goals or Purpose
Lincoln Street Neighborhood Bikeway: Between E 51st Avenue and E 44th Avenue
Lincoln Street was identified as a “neighborhood bikeway” in Globeville Neighborhood Plan (2014) and Denver Moves: Bicycles in 2011/2015). Funding for improvements will come the Elevate Denver bond program. Improvements are intended slow down speeds, improve visibility and make the street safer for everyone that uses it.
E 51ST Avenue Bike Lane: Between N Broadway Street and N Washington Street
E 51st is recommended as a bike lane in Globeville Neighborhood Plan (2014) and in Denver Moves: Bicycles (2011/2015). The street is scheduled to be repaved in 20201 and presents an opportunity to improve bicycle mobility on this street. Opportunities to link destinations, such as: N Lincoln St neighborhood bikeway, E 51st Ave shared use sidewalk, Carpio Sanguinette Park, Heron Pond/Heller Open Space, South Platte River Trail, The Laradon School, Stapleton Recreation Center.
East 45th Bike Connectivity: Between South Platte River Trail and N Broadway Street/E 44th Avenue
We are exploring options to provide a more comfortable east-west bike connection and are looking at 44th and 46th too. Opportunities to link destinations, such as: Beloved Community Village, South Platte River Trail, Globeville Landing Park, Garden Place Elementary School.
