Denver Public Works will be re-engaging residents who live in neighborhoods along Quebec Street as they launch a new effort to implement pedestrian and transit improvements along the corridor.
In September 2019, the Department officially halted a project that had been assessing the impacts of widening Quebec to four lanes from 13th to 26th Avenues, as it was determined there was the potential for significant impacts to adjacent properties and preliminary cost estimates were well beyond available funding.
The revised project will focus on meeting community priorities - including the addition of sidewalks, more reliable transit, and improved transit stops - with minimal impact to adjacent properties. Next steps will include a public process to define short-term and long-term recommendations, incorporate additional input from the community that reflects their values and priorities, align with community context to minimize impact, and move into project development and technical analysis.
The project team is planning to work with the public in Winter 2019-20 to share additional information and gather input to create a path forward toward improving the pedestrian and transit environment along Quebec.
