In 2020 and 2021, Denver’s Department of Transportation & Infrastructure (DOTI) established nine temporary Shared Streets to create safe and comfortable space for residents to walk, bike, roll, and play. These streets used short-term traffic calming methods to reduce vehicle trips and speeds which resulted in a significant increase in people walking and biking on these corridors. Based on this success, the City of Denver is creating a permanent Shared Streets Program.
To develop the future Shared Streets Program, the City will assess the success of the temporary shared streets, develop a set of design guidelines, and determine where Shared Streets could be implemented across the City.
Nine (9) streets were converted to temporary “shared streets” starting in April 2020.
The development of the Shared Streets Program kicked off in July 2022 and will conclude in the Spring of 2023. The City will conduct public outreach at three critical milestones:
Tell us what you thought!
During each of these phases of outreach, there will be different ways to give input both online and in person. Continue to check this website for specific ways to give your input during the study period.
Our Temporary Shared Street survey is live!
Let us know your experience on these corridors. The survey will be open until August 24, 2022.
