Community Transportation Networks

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.

*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. Status will be Construction 

*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.
