The street currently has two travel lanes in either direction, with a center turn-lane, and one lane for parking that is staggered along the north and south sides of Colfax.
We are seeking community input to help meet the community’s goals for the corridor and the intent of the bond project.
Thanks to everyone who joined us to learn more about the project!

A community task force is being used with a broad range of representatives to provide technical and community feedback, set goals, and inform designs.
West Colfax has been identified in the Vision Zero Action Plan (PDF) as part of the high-injury network. West Colfax is also considered a high-ridership corridor with more than 6,000 daily weekday RTD riders.
Denver Public Works is in the process of developing design alternatives. There will be an opportunity for community feedback on the proposed designs and the team will develop a preferred alternative based on this input.
