Denver is reinventing its roadways to move more people, more safely and efficiently through the city, and is working to complete networks that offer people more options to get around town in the ways that meet their day-to-day needs. As part of this effort, Denver is accelerating implementation of its Denver Moves: Bikes plan.
With an additional $18M in funding from the Elevate Denver Bond approved by voters in 2017, the city will be installing 125 miles of new bikeways over the next five years, increasing the number of households within a 5-minute ride of a high-comfort bike facility from 38 to 75 percent.
With passage of the bond, the people of Denver overwhelmingly said ‘yes’ to supporting more mobility options for people to choose from to move about our city, and we are primed and ready to get moving on delivering more high comfort bikeways citywide.
The Denver Department of Transportation and Infrastructure is seeking your input for new bike infrastructure.

In 2016, Denverites, helping to develop the city’s Bicycle Master Plan, proposed a bike lane on E Virginia Ave from S Jersey St to S Quebec St. Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure plans to repave a portion of E. Virginia Avenue in 2020, and seeks to coordinate the installation of this bike lane with its annual paving efforts.

In 2019, after extensive community input and technical planning, the City is designing a more multi-modal Broadway:

In summer 2019, Denver Public Works is placing bicycle counting tubes across bikeways in and around downtown Denver to count each person that crosses, to give our department a better picture of how many people are using bikes to get around the downtown area.
The goal is to use data collected this year as a baseline, and to repeat the study each year in the same locations so we can identify trends and changes in ridership. With this information, we'll be able to quantify how investments in new and upgraded bikeways change how people travel by bicycle and help us expand our bike network across the city.
Let us know about suggestions, damage or debris on the street, ice on paths or trails, or issues with signs and signals. Get in touch online, or via mobile app 24/7, to get help with city services.
