Jeanne Robb,
Council District 10

City Council District 10 is in the heart of Denver, and it includes the closely-knit neighborhoods of Capitol Hill, Congress Park, Bellevue-Hale, Mayfair, Cherry Creek, Country Club, Alamo Placita, and the Golden Triangle.

In District 10 you will also find our government center, the Denver Art Museum, the Colorado History Museum, and the Botanic Gardens. Within our wonderful District, we have 9 schools, 12 historic districts, 1 fire station, the Denver Police Department headquarters, 1 swimming pool, 4 hospitals, and the heart of Denver’s historic park and parkway system. So put your walking shoes on. In District 10, we live close together and it’s easy to walk to a movie theater, the grocery store, or the park.

District 10 Projects & Plans

Colfax/Galapago/Welton Intersection Improvement

In February 2013, the City will began the reconfiguration of the US 40 (Colfax Avenue)/Galapago/Welton intersection, shifting Welton Street eastward to align with Galapago Street, creating a 90-degree angle between Welton Street and Colfax Avenue,and  providing much-needed safety and operational improvements for motorists and pedestrians alike.

Motorists traveling northbound on Speer Boulevard will have more direct access into downtown Denver, as Galapago Street will be converted from a two-way street to a one-way street heading northbound.

Additional work will include new roadway construction; concrete and asphalt paving; new traffic signals and sidewalks. New Design Construction of Denver is the contractor for this project.

Project Schedule
Work will begin in February 2013 and is expected to last through December 2013. Normal work hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with limited weekend work. While construction is happening, motorists should anticipate single lane closures on Colfax Avenue and Welton Street between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

RTD Bus Stop Impacts
The westbound bus stop on Colfax Avenue, between Glenarm Place and Welton Street will be slightly relocated during construction for safety purposes. Signs will be posted, directing riders to the location of the temporary bus stop.

This report summarizes the current traffic and parking conditions in the Cherry Creek business 
district, shopping district and residential neighborhood. This report provides an update to a 
parking inventory and occupancy evaluation that was conducted in the summer and fall of 2010, along with the summary report for which was issued in February 2011 (February 2011 Report). 

This report notes two major changes between the two inventory reports:

1. Parking meters (otherwise known as Denver Smart Meters) have replaced the parking kiosks in the Cherry Creek North Commercial Area since completion of the previous inventory.

2. A change in the traffic volume, travel speeds, and statistical examinations of bicycle parking are noted in this inventory.

Colfax Corridor Connections

A Collaborative Effort to Increase Public Transit

The City and County of Denver, in coordination with the City of Aurora, kicked of the new transportation planning project in October of 2012. The collaborative movement seeks to identify and develop ways to improve transit and overall mobility in the East Colfax corridor, which is roughly bounded  by I-25 to the west, I-225 to the east, 12th Avenue to the south and 20th Avenue to the north.

"Colfax Corridor Connections will provide a road-map for us to begin improving mobility and accessibility for transit users, pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers"

-Terry Ruiter, Colfax Corridor Connections
 Project Manager with the City and County of Denver

To view videos about potential advancements in public transport, follow these links:

Until November of 2013, CCC will study mobility and accessibility needs in the corridor and identify transit and other improvements. This project seeks to improve mobility, livability and accessibility within the corridor. Funding is a current roadblock to immediate implementation, though Colfax Corridor Connections views the current research as a stepping stone toward the procurement of funding in the near future. Community input is essential, and more information can be found at www.ColfaxCorridorConnections.com.

Updated Cherry Creek Parking & Traffic Inventory for 2013

Denver Public Works recently completed an updated inventory of parking and traffic conditions for the Cherry Creek area.

The overview includes both on and off-street parking, as well as an analysis of peak traffic conditions and parking occupancy rates.

Additionally, Public Works lays out planning efforts for current and future studies, including an analysis of 1st and Steele and the Speer/Leetsdale Corridor.

Cherry Creek University and Josephine Improvements

The Cherry Creek Improvements project includes storm sewer improvements on University Boulevard from Cherry Creek North Drive to East 2nd Avenue and Josephine Street and street reconstruction of University Boulevard from Cherry Creek Drive North to East 6th Avenue. The storm drainage improvements are needed to help reduce the frequent flooding experienced in the project area. The street reconstruction is needed to replace heavily deteriorated street pavement and damaged curb and gutter conditions existing in this important transportation corridor.
