Coordinated Bike Lane Striping & Installation

DOTI is committed to implementing a network of better bike facilities in our city that make it safer, more comfortable and viable for people to ride bikes, and to creating a bike network that connects people to the places they want to go. 

Annually, DOTI efficiently coordinates the installation of bikeways recommended in the Denver Moves: Bicycles Program with annual paving activities. DOTI intends to implement bike lanes in coordination with street repaving efforts, which are scheduled to occur between April and October 2021. Registered Neighborhood Organizations (RNOs) will receive information by email, and flyers will be delivered to properties along the corridor in advance of the repaving work, to notify homeowners and businesses of the changes on the roadway that they will see following paving. 

Want to learn more and participate? Virtual public meetings will be held in February/March to gather public feedback. See “Get Involved” and specific project drop downs for public meeting details.

Project Benefits 

These changes will improve transportation options, making it easier to get to the places that you want to go. Additional benefits include:

  • Safety is the number one priority of these projects. Research indicates adding a protected bike lane to a roadway can reduce the risk of injury up to 90% for all commuters. Benefits of bike lanes for all roadway users include slower speeds, more predictability at intersections, and enhanced safety.
  • The project will provide dedicated space on the street for people on bikes, providing more transportation choice, which helps to manage congestion city-wide.
  • The design will increase comfort of riding and reduce potential conflicts between bicycles and cars.
  • Projects will provide better connections to schools, parks, trails, transit and shopping areas.

Ongoing Project Details

W Kentucky Avenue from Sheridan Blvd to Vallejo St

Get Involved: The designs for this corridor are complete. Please reach out to bikes@denvergov.org with any questions.

In 2021, a buffered bike lane will be installed to improve safety and connectivity on W Kentucky Ave from Sheridan Blvd to Vallejo St, and the full street will be repaved in 2022. Implementing a buffered bike lane will change the cross-section of the street by removing on-street parking, and will provide a continuous bikeway through the Westwood and Athmar Park neighborhoods.

DOTI held two virtual open houses for this project.

September 30, 2020

April 15, 2020: At this meeting, the Denver Department of Transportation and Infrastructure presented existing conditions for the corridor (e.g., speed, car volumes, land use) and gathered input on the corridor's current travel patterns. This meeting helped to inform the bikeway design.
