Our location and a layout for our one day demonstration project to Re-imagine West Colfax is set: the block of West Colfax between Tennyson and Utica, as shown.
This layout was developed in a highly successful one-day technical workshop with volunteers from Alta Planning, Wilson & Company, Toole Design, HDR, Denver Public Works, CDOT and RTD. It reflects the concerns and preferences of businesses and residents from two sessions on June 11th (results and data analysis from those meeting and earlier are shown here).
The Re-imagine West Colfax design demonstration on August 16th will include several types of bike lanes that allow riders to test what it feels like to ride on each. It will also include pedestrian bulb outs to decrease the crossing distance on Colfax. Participants can also experience enhanced crosswalks, median refuges, wider sidewalks and small pop-up parks along Colfax. All of these features will be paired with food trucks, music, art and beer!
