Coordinated Bike Lane Striping & Installation


Beginning in 2020, Denver's Department of Transportation and Infrastructure will speed up implementation of its bike program with a new approach, including coordinating the striping of bike lanes with street paving operations.

 

DOTI is committed to implementing a network of better bike facilities in our city that make it more comfortable and viable for people to ride bikes, and to creating a bike network that connects people to the places they want to go.

W Kentucky Ave Bikeway Virtual Open House

E Dartmouth Ave Bikeway Virtual Open House

W Jewell Ave Bikeway Virtual Open House

On January 21, 2020, DOTI joined a neighborhood meeting to provide information to the community about a bike lane on Virginia Avenue from Jersey Street to Quebec Street that was identified in our Denver Moves: Bikes plan. This bikeway will serve two schools and connects to the Garland Trail that leads to the Cherry Creek Trail.  

This stretch of road will be paved in 2020, which provides the opportunity to coordinate installation of the bikeway following paving of the street, resulting in greater efficiency. The intent of this meeting was to share these plans and receive input from the community, take comments, and answer questions.

A follow-up meeting will be held in the coming months;  information with details of this meeting will be posted on here.

On February 4, 2020, DOTI joined a neighborhood meeting to provide information to the community about a bike lane on E. Jewell Avenue from S. Bellaire Street to S. Oneida Street, which was identified in our Denver Moves: Bikes Plan.  This bikeway will provide a safe, comfortable and convenient connection to the I-25 Bike/Ped Bridge to Colorado Station on the west, and on the east, connect to the proposed bike lane on S Oneida St. This street connects to Cook Park and the Cherry Creek Trail.

A portion of E. Jewell Avenue will be paved in 2020, which provides the opportunity to coordinate installation of the bikeway following paving of the street, resulting in greater efficiency. The intent of this meeting was to gain feedback on coordinating the bike lane installation with the road repaving from the community, take comments, and answer questions.

W Jewell Ave Bikeway Virtual Open House

On February 18, 2020, DOTI joined a neighborhood meeting to provide information to the community about a bike lane on W. Jewell Avenue from S. Federal Boulevard to S. Lipan Street that was identified in our Denver Moves: Bikes plan. The intent of this meeting was to share existing conditions on the corridor and receive input from the community, take comments, and answer questions.

This bikeway will provide a safe, comfortable and convenient connection to the commercial area on Federal Boulevard on the west, and on the east, provide bike access to Ruby Hill Park and bike park.  This street will be the first paving project in the neighborhood and will be followed by a bike lane project south of W. Jewell Avenue on S. Zuni Street in coming years.

Similarly, the extent of W. Jewell Avenue between S. Federal Boulevard and S. Lipan Street will be paved in 2020, which provides the opportunity to coordinate installation of the bikeway following paving of the street, resulting in greater efficiency.

The Second Public Open House for this project is scheduled, which will be held as a Virtual Open House! After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. For questions, email bikes@denvergov.org

The intent of this meeting is to share what DOTI heard through the outreach process, present the bikeway design for the corridor, discuss the removal of parking from both sides of the street to accommodate the bike lane, and answer questions about next steps. Click on the link to register today, or join by clicking on the link the day and time that the meeting starts. 

E Dartmouth Ave Bikeway Virtual Open House

On February 12, 2020, DOTI joined a neighborhood meeting to provide information to the community about a buffered bike lane on E. Dartmouth Avenue from University Blvd to Colorado Blvd, which was identified in our Denver Moves: Bikes Plan. The intent of this meeting was to gain feedback on coordinating the bike lane installation with the road repaving from the community, take comments, and understand any other safety concerns on the corridor.

This portion of E. Dartmouth Avenue will be paved in 2020, which provides the opportunity to coordinate installation of the bikeway following paving of the street, resulting in greater efficiency.

Annually, DOTI coordinates the installation of bikeways recommended in Denver Moves: Bicycles, with annual paving activities, which results in greater efficency.

In 2021, W Kentucky Ave from Sheridan Blvd to Zuni St is scheduled to be repaved. The corridor currently has two travel lanes and no painted bike lane. Denver Moves: Bicycles includes the recommendation to install a bike lane on the corridor, though through a technical analysis a buffered bike lane is now necessary. Implementing a buffered bike lane will impact the existing cross-section of the road because on-street parking will be removed to accommodate the bikeway.

A Virtual Open House has been scheduled for April 15th 2020, from 6:00 to 7:00PM. At this meeting, DOTI will engage with the community to gather input on the corridor's current travel patterns as well as existing barriers to biking that can be addressed through this project. Following this first meeting, draft designs will be presented in summer 2020.

DOTI intends to implement the bike lane following the repaving effort, which is scheduled to occur in 2021. We will be emailing RNOs with this information and delivering flyers to properties along the corridor in advance of the repaving work, to notify homeowners and businesses of the change in striping on the roadway that they will see following paving.

Virtual Open House: Wednesday, April 15

Annually, DOTI coordinates the installation of bikeways recommended in Denver Moves: Bicycles, with annual paving activities, which results in greater efficency.

This year, E 1st Ave from N Quebec St to N Roslyn St is scheduled to be repaved. The corridor currently has three travel lanes, and no painted bike lane. Denver Moves: Bicycles includes the recommendation to install a bike lane on the corridor. Implementing a bike lane will not impact the existing cross-section of the road (three travel lanes will remain). A dedicated right turn lane on the westbound approach to N Quebec St will be removed to accomodate the bike lane.

DOTI intends to implement the bike lane following the repaving effort, which is scheduled to occur in mid-April. We will be emailing RNOs with this information and delivering flyers to properties along the corridor in advance of the repaving work, to notify homeowners and businesses of the change in striping on the roadway that they will see following paving.

Annually, DOTI coordinates the installation of bikeways recommended in Denver Moves: Bicycles, with annual paving activities, which results in greater efficency.

E 7th Ave Parkway from N Williams St to N Colorado Blvd started to be repaved in late March. The corridor currently has a painted bike lane, with no striped buffer. Denver Moves: Bicycles includes the recommendation to upgrade the corridor to a painted buffered bike lane, which will widen bike lane on the roadway between the travel lane the bike lane. Implementing a buffered bike lane will not impact the existing cross-section of the road (one travel lane, and one parking lane, will remain in both directions).

DOTI will be implementing a buffered bike lane in coordination with the repaving effort. We have emailed RNOs with this information, and delivered flyers to properties along the corridor in advance of the repaving work, to notify homeowners of the change in striping on the roadway that they will see following paving.

Annually, DOTI implements bikeways recommended in Denver Moves: Bicycles, with little to no impact to parking and travel lanes.

This year, E Mansfield Ave/Rosemary Way from S Monaco Pkwy to S Tamarac Dr is identified to be one of those low impact projects. Denver Moves: Bicycles includes the recommendation to install a bike lane which will connect existing bike facilities in the neighborhood. Implementing a bike lane will not impact the existing cross-section of the road (one travel lane, and one parking lane, will remain in both directions).

We will be delivering flyers to properties along the corridor in advance of the repaving work, which is scheduled to occur in April, to notify homeowners of the change in striping on the roadway that they will see following paving. View the construction notification flyer here.
