Background Denver is changing. Between 2006 and 2014, an average of 40 people moved to the City every day. Continued growth is putting pressure on the City’s transportation system and Denver is addressing this demand by offering people more ways to get around town safely. City planning efforts have made recommendations for improving mobility along the popular Broadway/Lincoln corridor. Recommendations include addition of a protected, two-way bikeway on South Broadway, a study of the existing transit lane, and cohesive parking management strategies.
Phase 1 In September 2015, The City and County of Denver launched the Denver Moves Broadway/Lincoln Corridor Study to explore options for making Broadway/Lincoln a safer and more vibrant place for all travelers between Colfax and I-25. The City collaborated with businesses and community members to develop recommendations for Broadway and Lincoln.

What is the Project Background?
Many plans have identified the importance of, and made recommendations for, the Broadway/Lincoln corridor. Recommendations include addition of a protected, two-way bikeway on Broadway, enhancement of the existing transit lane, and cohesive parking management strategies.
Broadway/Lincoln is a vibrant mixed-use district with dense commercial and residential land uses, making it a popular destination. Broadway/Lincoln is also a major link between downtown and I-25, which means it carries a lot of vehicle traffic.
Throughout the project, there will be opportunities to be a part of the study process and provide important feedback and input. Your ideas matter and we encourage your participation.
