'Denver Moves'

City continues work on connecting neighborhoods with bikeways


Denver's Department of Transportation & Infrastructure (DOTI) continues to engage with the community for its Denver Moves: Bicycles Program. The idea is to achieve a “network of better bike facilities in Denver that make it more comfortable, safe and accessible for people to ride bikes,” states the website.

Three areas - being called Community Transportation Networks (CTN) - will be the focus through 2024. They are:

• Northwest Denver CTN - Regis, Berkeley, Sunnyside, West Highland, Sloan Lake and Jefferson Park.

• Central Denver CTN - Five Points, Cole, Clayton, Whittier, City Park West and City Park.

• South Central Denver CTN - Baker, La Alma, Lincoln Park, Capitol Hill, Alamo Placita, Country Club, City Park West, Cheeseman Park, Golden Triangle, West Washington Park, Overland, Platt Park and Rosedale.

This article focuses on the projects in the South Central Denver CTN that are in the Washington Park Profile's coverage area.

The city has divided the projects into three phases:

• Planning - the community is asked to provide feedback on the project. The city has surveys for some of the projects, which can be accessed online at www.ctnvirtualopenhouse.com.

• Design - the project team advances the conceptual design's ideas and concepts into detailed engineering.

• Construction - the project design is complete and construction of the project will soon begin.

A virtual open house on the South Central Denver CTN took place on Feb. 4, and another is slated for Spring 2021. Here are where the projects will be taking place, and what phase each is in.
