Hampden Avenue Corridor
After a Hampden Corridor Study and public input, the first phase of Hampden improvements were completed in 2019 including medians, new crosswalks and a new light at Verbena. Phase two improvements will include a redesign of the Locust intersection to increase pedestrian safety as well as a new “Southmoor” sign at Monaco.

Yale Avenue Corridor
- Construction on a new traffic signal at Yale & Yale Circle (near the Yale Light Rail Station) will begin this spring (2020) and should be complete in the fall.
- A Yale Corridor Study is underway to look at safety improvements from Downing to the Holly. The study began in December 2019 with an existing conditions assessment and will conclude in late 2020. You can watch the April 29, 2020 meeting online. Check the project page for information.
- A tunnel connecting the High Line Canal Trail under Yale and Holly is funded through the Elevate Denver Bond. It has not yet been designed. Project timeline is TBD.
Colorado Boulevard Corridor
- Pedestrian safety improvements to the Buchtel and Colorado Boulevard and Evans and Colorado intersections have been designed and partially funded, but not scheduled.
- Community members shared their ideas to improve the South Colorado Blvd corridor in 2019. Their ideas will help inform future improvements. View the SoCo Blvd Visioning Infographic (PDF).
Evans Avenue Corridor
- Pedestrian safety improvements to the Evans and Colorado and Buchtel and Colorado have been designed and partially funded, but not scheduled.
- An Evans Corridor Study has been requested, but not yet funded.
- The Near Southeast Area Plan will engage neighbors north and south of Evans to develop a neighborhood plan to guide growth into the future. The plan is part of the citywide Neighborhood Planning Initiative. It is expected to kick-off in 2020.
The city is installing 125 miles of bikes lanes in Denver to create a connected bike network.
- Dahlia bike lane from Yale to Iliff is planned to be installed in 2020.
- Separated bike lanes on Dartmouth from University to Colorado Boulevard will be installed in 2020.
- The Princeton bike lane design has changed from a Protected Bike Lane to a Neighborhood Bikeway. Design will happen fall 2020 and construction is scheduled for 2021.
High Line Canal Trail
- Construction of two High Line Canal tunnels under Hampden & Colorado Boulevard connecting the Denver portion of the trail to Cherry Hills Village will begin this spring (2020) and should take about a year.
- An enhanced crosswalk and median across Holly Street near Iliff Avenue will be constructed in 2020.
- A tunnel connecting the High Line Canal Trail under Yale and Holly has been funded by the Elevate Denver Bond. It has not yet been designed. Project timeline is TBD.
- A pilot stormwater project along the High Line Canal, between Wellshire Golf Course and I-25 will be implemented to determine the feasibility of turning the canal into a water quality facility. Three structures will be installed to hold stormwater and release it slowly over an extended period of time to clean the water and increase water for trees. Project dates are TBD.
- The High Line Canal bridge at Holly and Eastman will be replaced in the fall of 2020.

Other Mobility Projects:
- A signalized crosswalk on Quincy at Syracuse is planned. No start date has been identified.
- The traffic signals at Yosemite and I-225 will be rebuilt in 2021 to improve safety.
