Syracuse Street Corridor

Study & Design Project

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.


Meeting Materials — February 2019

The City and County of Denver shared design plans for bicycle improvements that the community helped form during previous public meetings. Bike lanes and other amenities were recommended during past studies along Syracuse Street and Roslyn Street between 8th Ave. and Martin Luther King Boulevard. 


  • Develop enhanced bicycle facilities on Syracuse Street to complement planned multimodal improvement projects on Quebec Street
  • Improve intersection safety and operations for people walking, biking, and driving
  • Connect new bicycle facilities with the overall bicycle network and RTD transit services
  • Incorporate community feedback related to resident access, parking, and safety
