38th & Blake Station Area Improvements

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:

  • Flattening the “hump” on the Blake Street Bridge over 38th Street so drivers have a better view of pedestrians and people on bikes 
  • Installed nearly 4,000 feet of new sidewalks in the area, including wider sidewalks on each side of the bridge for enhanced pedestrian mobility and safety 
  • Dedicated bike lanes in both directions 
  • A new, multi-use trail connection between 38th/Walnut Street and RTD’s 38th and Blake Station

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.
