Community Transportation Networks

Overview

Overview

Map of Denver showing three transportation network areas in northwest, Central, and South Central neighborhoodsDOTI is committed to achieving a network of better bike facilities in Denver that make it more comfortable, safe, and accessible for people to ride bikes, and to creating a bike network that connects people to the places they want to go. Through 2024, Denver will be focusing on three areas to both understand and prioritize multimodal concerns and implement a system of bikeways.

Get Involved

Please see each corridor’s pulldown information for upcoming public meeting information.

To learn more about the Central, South Central and Northwest Networks, please click on the links above. Within each network is additional information about the corridors in design and construction, as well as information about upcoming opportunities for engagement.

In addition, in 2022, we will be sharing information about the multimodal priority projects that you shared through this Online Input Map (please note that we are no longer collecting feedback through this map).

*What does Project Status mean?
 

  • Planning – Team is leading analysis of existing conditions and alternatives, and generating conceptual ideas for changes to the corridor, and sharing ideas with the community to gain feedback about pros and cons of different solutions. Designs being revised to reflect feedback.  
  • Design – The conceptual design has been shared with the community and confirmed. Team is advancing ideas and concepts into detailed engineering. More advanced designs are shared with the community to clearly communicate specific changes and assess modifications.  
  • Construction – The project design is complete. Project is being programmed for construction, and public will be notified in advance of construction date.

*What does Bikeway Type mean? 

We build different types of bikeways depending on the characteristics of the road. These types include:

  • Neighborhood Bikeways - Low-stress, low volume streets that prioritize pedestrian and bicycle movement. Learn more »
  • Protected Bike Lanes - Dedicated bikeways on streets that have both a horizontal and vertical buffer between a person bicycling and motor vehicles.
  • Bike Lanes and Buffered Bike Lanes - Dedicated bikeways on streets that use paint to separate a person bicycling and motor vehicles.

 

Northwest Denver

Between 2020 and 2021, the City and County of Denver made bicycle improvements to 10 streets in Northwest Denver -- from extending bike lanes on W 50th Ave to upgrading to protected bike lanes on W 23rd Ave/Water, we are building out a complete network to get you and your bicycle from A to B.

Thanks to the thousands of people who have provided input to shape the Northwest Community Transportation Network. With your help, we will continue to build more complete multimodal networks that establish a more connected, safe, and accessible transportation network.

Virtual Public Meeting on May 18, 2022

A Virtual Public Meeting for the Northwest Community Transportation Network was held on May 18, 2022 where we discussed bikeway installations planned for later this year, the Lowell Blvd/Meade St proposed bikeway design, and provided an update on the N Tejon St corridor bikeway.  Meeting videos are available below:

Please provide your input on the N Lowell Blvd/Meade St proposed bikeway design by Friday, June 17th at bit.ly/NWCTNComment

South Central Denver

The South Central Community Transportation Networks Program (SC CTN) is designed to provide more transportation options that are safer and more efficient for Denver residents to walk, bike, drive and take public transit.

The SC CTN consists of 31 project corridors, which includes the following neighborhoods: Baker, La Alma, Lincoln Park, Capitol Hill, Alamo Placita, Country Club, City Park West, Cheeseman Park, Golden Triangle, West Washington Park, Overland, Platt Park and Rosedale. Included in this effort is the city’s Multimodal Improvement Project to enhance pedestrian, cyclist, and vehicular safety that benefits the community in many other ways, including traffic calming, safer pedestrian crossings, safer bicycle travel, traffic efficiency, and multi-modal safety.

Project Status:  T
he Project Team, led by the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI), has collected public feedback through community surveys, office hour meetings with residents and an online community input tool that allows residents to comment directly on proposed designs.

We have used community input to help design better bike networks in two phases. Phase 1 corridors are nearing final designs in preparation for construction and Phase 2 corridors are entering final concept designs and will include another round of community feedback in 2022.


Stay Connected
