To enhance mobility around the new RTD commuter rail station at 38th & Blake, part of the University of Colorado A Line that opened in spring 2016, Public Works completed several multimodal improvements:
In April 2016, Denver Public Works made improvements to Wynkoop Street between 16th and 18th streets to prioritize the pedestrian environment in front of Union Station, including enhanced crosswalks, bicycle facilities, and wayfinding signage.
This new multi-use path provides dedicated pedestrian and bicycle access to the new RTD commuter rail station at 41st and Fox that will open with RTD's upcoming G Line, and additional improvements to the 38th Avenue Underpass help pedestrians travel safely in the area. The path also serves as an extension to the Platte River Regional bike trail and the Inca Pedestrian Bridge.
This project near Kennedy Ball Fields and Kennedy Golf Course in southeast Denver will mitigate flooding by constructing an outfall pipeline system to redirect flood waters from the existing detention basin to Cherry Creek during a 100-year storm event.
The historic McNichols Civic Center Building reopened in September 2016 following renovations to improve operations and accessibility. A redesigned courtyard and new interior facilities created more usable space for higher capacity events and more diverse programming.
