One of the most significant challenges to pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular mobility for communities in the project area is the Blake Street Bridge over 38th Street. Numerous studies have identified improvements to this location as a priority.
The bridge is being redesigned to improve the approach and flatten the hump over 38th Street for better sight distance and safety. Wide, bike-friendly sidewalks over the bridge will offer enhanced pedestrian and bike mobility. In addition, a new multi-use trail connection will be constructed between 38th/Walnut Street and RTD’s 38th/Blake Station. Construction is expected to begin in 2015 and be completed in 2016.
