Project Background

Project 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.

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.

Existing Conditions

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.

What happens next?

The City continues to monitor performance of the bikeway and will release another evaluation report after 12 months of data.

Later this year, the City will post more information about the upcoming Broadway multimodal design project.
