Denver Moves, the City and County of Denver’s Bicycle and Walking Action Plan, called for 270 new miles of bicycle facilities, including a future Neighborhood Bikeway (NBW) facility on West 35th Avenue, which is designated as a local street and bicycle route by the City.
The NBW study area is in western Denver between Navajo Street and Sheridan Boulevard on W 35th Avenue. The mostly-residential corridor is 2.6 miles long and connects to key bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular routes, including downtown Denver. It spans east-west across two neighborhoods in west Denver — Highland and West Highland — connecting schools, parks, and retail areas.
The city has developed final design plans for the bikeway facilities along W. 35th Ave, following the recommendations from the feasibility study and incorporating community feedback. This project will be advertised for construction in fall 2018 with an anticipated construction date of Spring 2019. Additional information about this improvement project will be posted when the construction schedule is finalized.
Stay involved with the project through construction by emailing Dan Raine at Dan.Raine@denvergov.org.
Recommendations were developed by understanding existing needs and opportunities, by identifying desired design outcomes, by applying a variety of tools and relevant design references, and by coordinating with the City and public. Initial recommendations were reviewed and refined based on City coordination. Recommended proposals were presented to the public for their input.
