Broadway Bike Lane Project


Week of October 17

On Friday, October 7th, the City of Denver in cooperation with Hamon Infrastructure broke ground on the long awaited Broadway Multimodal Project. This project will take place along Broadway between 7th Avenue and Center Avenue, and will continue for the next 12 to 18 months. Work will focus primarily on intersection improvements and installing a new protected bike lane.

This Week's Travel Impacts:

  • Work this week will take place from 7 a.m to 7 p.m, Monday through Friday. Lane closures will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

  • Crews have started working at Virginia Street and Broadway intersection. They will be at this location for the next three weeks and anticipate to open up the first week of November.

  • Travelers can expect both single and double lane closures on the west side of the road between Alaska Place and Virginia Street. These closures are primarily within the bus lane but will not impact any bus routes or stops.

  • Parking spots may be limited in this section of roadway, so we ask motorists to park on the side streets.

  • The project team does not anticipate major delays with traffic, but travelers are encouraged to account for extra travel time to be on the safe side. Please slow down while driving through the work zone, watch for construction workers and equipment and allow extra space between vehicles.

Project Overview

  • New two-way protected bikeway on Broadway uses concrete curb and a row of parking to separate people on bikes from people in cars and connects the Cherry Creek Trail to Center Avenue and RTD’s Broadway station.

  • Curb ramp and sidewalk reconstruction will be made at intersections and other locations along the corridor to provide additional safety and comfort for people walking along Broadway.

  • Streetscaping will be enhanced by improving the landscape areas and growing conditions for street trees.

  • Multimodal improvements for better access to bus stops, shorter intersection crossings and improved walkability.

  • Wayfinding signage will be provided to help guide people to multimodal connections along the corridor.

  • Public art locations have been identified for areas along the corridor to complement Broadway’s unique character.

  • Infrastructure improvements such us reconstructed traffic signals and upgraded drainage.
