Denver Moves Bikes (2011) identified the Syracuse Street Corridor within the East Denver neighborhoods of Lowry, East Colfax, and Stapleton as a “Needs Further Study” project due to its unique character and ideal location as a primary north/south route for current and future bicycle needs.
The Syracuse Street Corridor Study and Design Project will develop preliminary designs for enhanced bicycle facilities and increased safety at intersections for all users along Syracuse Street between 8th Avenue and E. 26th Avenue with near-term implementation feasibility. The project will include recommendations for the at-grade trail crossing between E. 23rd Avenue and E. 26th Avenue at Fred Thomas Park.
In 2015, an alternatives analysis of Quebec Street identified the need for multimodal improvements including bicycle, pedestrian and transit access. With limited right-of-way on Quebec, the city will focus bicycle facility improvements along Syracuse Street (four blocks to the east) in conjunction with the redesign of the Quebec Street corridor between E. 13th Avenue and E. 26th Avenue.

This study began in Summer 2016 and is expected to run through the end of 2017. Opportunities and recommendations are expected to be released this year.
