DENVER MOVES: BROADWAY

 

Multimodal Design

 

Since 2015, Denver Public Works has been studying Broadway to make the corridor safer for bicyclists, drivers, pedestrians and transit riders.

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

  • Broadway South Segment: Detailed design of construction-ready plans from 7th Avenue at the Cherry Creek Trail south to the I-25 Broadway Station.
    The voter-approved Elevate Denver Bond Program invests $12 million toward the construction of Denver Moves: Broadway’s South Segment.
  • Broadway North Segment: Conceptual design from 7th Avenue north to 16th Avenue.

Goals

Creating vibrant places where people of all ages and abilities feel comfortable using any mode of travel is central to the project’s goals:

  • Everyone arrives safely
  • Community and business collaboration
  • New and enhanced mobility options for everyone

SAFETY: Supports Vision Zero with street design that protects people walking and biking in part of Denver’s High Injury Network (HIN).

EFFICIENCY: Moves more people through the same amount of space by improving options for walking, biking, transit and driving.

CONNECTIVITY: Increases options for getting to and from downtown, entertainment districts, major transit stations and transportation corridors.

COMMUNITY CHARACTER: Provides opportunities for public art, landscaping and other streetscape improvements.

The Elevate Denver Bond Program is a 10-year, $937 million general obligation bond approved by voters in 2017 to enhance the City and County of Denver by providing critical citywide improvements to the infrastructure that defines Denver — our roads and sidewalks, parks and playgrounds, libraries and museums. Through more than 500 projects, Elevate Denver ensures our city works for everyone — from theater patrons to hospital patients, first responders to bicycle commuters.

Transit Improvements

 

Following initial transit improvements along the Broadway/Lincoln corridor, Denver Public Works plans to extend transit-only lane hours on South Lincoln Street. During the planning phase, the project team is seeking input from the community on the preferred alternative for Lincoln from I-25 to 7th Avenue.
