38th & Blake Station: TOD Infrastructure Project

The City and County of Denver’s Public Infrastructure (38th & Blake Station) TOD Project will make infrastructure improvements to provide better pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular access to the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD’s) future 38th & Blake rail station that is being built as part of its FasTracks program.

The project will construct thousands of feet of new sidewalks immediately surrounding the station and define a plan for improving the existing Blake Street Bridge over 38th Street, which has been identified by the City and local community as a priority for improving accessibility to the station.

Through this project, the City will refine and begin implementing a long-term vision for the station area that builds 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. This project will be closely coordinated with the station and rail improvements that are planned for RTD’s East Rail Line and Central Rail Extension projects.

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.
