Denver will start the new year right with a project to improve safety and reduce risks to people and property in an area of town that is known to flood. On January 6, weather permitting, the city will begin work to install a larger stormwater pipe along Jackson Street from the north side of Colfax Avenue to 14th Avenue, providing additional capacity to carry and drain stormwater for this area. Later in the year, the project heads east on 14th Street for about half a block.

It’s the second 24-hour transit lane to be added in Downtown Denver within the last two months to help move more people, more efficiently in the city with transit. The week of December 16, weather permitting, crews will begin installing red-colored “bus only” markings and new signage on 17th Street from Broadway to Market. Installation could take a few weeks to complete. An additional block from Market to Blake will be added after a construction project on that block is complete.

Denver’s plan to reconstruct the 16th Street Mall took a major step forward today with the completion of the project’s environmental phase. The City and County of Denver and project partners the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), Regional Transportation District (RTD), Denver Urban Renewal Authority (DURA), and Downtown Denver Partnership (DDP) will next initiate the process to select a design/build contractor to reconstruct the 16th Street Mall including gathering feedback from the community on key components of the reconstruction process. FTA found the project to have no significant impact on environmental resources and officially issued a “Finding of No Significant Impact” (FONSI) on Nov. 26, 2019. This marks completion of the Environmental Assessment (EA). The EA identified a Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) to reconstruct the 16th Street Mall between Market Street and Broadway to address infrastructure, mobility, safety, and public use needs (see attached graphic).

The announcement of the competitive bidding process approach comes on the heels of Denver Bike Sharing’s announcement that it will cease the operation of Denver B-cycle on January 30, 2020.
