38th & Blake Station: TOD Infrastructure Project

About the Project


The Public Infrastructure (38th & Blake Station) TOD Project will make immediate improvements to the area around the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD’s) future 38th & Blake rail station and also define a plan for improving the existing Blake Street Bridge over 38th Street. The project area currently presents the community with mobility challenges including limited pedestrian and bicycle access to the future station.

The project will build off the recommendations, decisions and input from the City’s 38th & Blake Station Area Plan, the Next Steps 38th & Blake Traffic Operational Study and others. While specific improvements will be localized to the area immediately surrounding the future rail station, the project will provide improved access and mobility to residents of the Cole, Five Points, Elyria-Swansea, Curtis Park, River North and Upper Larimer neighborhoods.

Project Highlights

One of the first improvements you will see from the Public Infrastructure (38th & Blake Station) TOD Project will be thousands of feet of new sidewalks that will improve pedestrian access to RTD’s 38th & Blake rail station.

Specific areas identified for sidewalk improvements include:

  • Blake St from 35th St to 40th St
  • 36th St from Blake St to Downing St
  • 38th St from Arkins Ct to mid-way between Chestnut Pl and Delgany St
  • 40th St from Blake St to Walnut St


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 project team is currently in the earliest stages of developing and assessing the basic technical feasibility of various options for improving this connection. Once technical feasibility is determined in Summer 2012, the team will share more information and seek input.
