Garfield Street Bikeway
Through the Denver Moves planning process, Denver Public Works has identified the Garfield Street corridor for development as a neighborhood bikeway to prioritize multimodal north/south movement between City Park and the Cherry Creek Trail.
Neighborhood bikeways (NBWs) include design features that enhance bicycling and walking for a wide range of people while also supporting local vehicle traffic for residents and businesses. When fully constructed, the Neighborhood Bikeway will link key business destinations to neighborhoods, provide active living opportunities to families, strengthen neighborhood character, encourage mode share change along the corridor, and work toward Vision Zero safety goals.
Phase 1: Dakota, Alameda, 17th Avenue Intersections
Phase 1 of this project will begin installing multimodal improvements and traffic calming measures at three intersections along Garfield Street to support connectivity and improve safety. These crossings were the top priorities for safety enhancements during the initial study and public feedback process in 2015-16.
Design will be completed in Fall 2019. Construction is expected to be completed in 2020.
Phase 2: 1st, 6th, and Bayaud Avenue Intersections, Striping, and Wayfinding
Phase 2 of the bikeway design will build on recommendations from the 2016 Garfield Street Neighborhood Bikeway Feasibility Study. The recommended improvements include three intersection improvements for Garfield Street at 1st Avenue, 6th Avenue, and Bayaud Avenue, as well as Neighborhood Bikeway striping and wayfinding for the entire corridor from City Park to Cherry Creek.
