As Denver changes and grows, there are more and more demands on our streets and transportation system. The Complete Street Design Guidelines are the guiding principals for the city's public right of way, detailing how we allocate space to transportation, utilities and other public infrastructure. 

These guidelines are an extension of the public conversation contained in Blueprint Denver, the city's plan for land use and transportation, which was adopted in 2019. Blueprint identified a framework for street types within the City of Denver, which vary by neighborhood context and features. In alignment with Blueprint Denver, Denver's Department of Transportation & Infrastructure is updating its internal documentation, policies and guidelines to reflect Denver’s growth and desire to move more people, more efficiently.

Review of the Complete Streets Design Guidelines will begin in Fall 2019 and will include public input, surveys and community outreach. Updates are expected to be completed in Spring 2020.

Updates to Denver's Transportation Standards and Details will begin in Summer 2020.
