The City and County of Denver is working with communities to create complete transportation networks, implementing a new strategy for planning multimodal networks and rapidly building out high-comfort bike projects through this program.

Your feedback on the proposed improvements below will help us plan and design the projects that best meet the community’s needs.
 
The following survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete. Thank you for your input!
N Delaware St / W 5th Ave

Question Title

Image
Based on outreach conducted for the South Central Community Transportation Network, you have let us know that crossing Speer Blvd at N Bannock St is challenging. The results from the network verification survey comparing the Delaware 5th Ave alignment to the the N Bannock St/Speer Blvd alignment indicated a strong preference for the Delaware/5th Ave route to cross Speer Blvd. Reasons included a preference for a solution that is more feasible in the near-term, and many residents indicated that even if Speer Blvd was improved, riding or walking along Speer Blvd would still not be comfortable. Given this, the project team is advancing the 5th Ave/Delaware Alignment as the project to cross Speer Blvd, through the South Central CTN program.  This design will result in a bike lane along Delaware St from 8th Ave to 6th Ave, and a Neighborhood Bikeway on Delaware Ave from 6th Ave to 5th Ave, and finally, a neighborhood bikeway on 5th Ave connecting from Delaware to the existing bike lane on N Bannock St.

Given the speeds and volumes of N Delaware between 8th Ave and 6th Ave, a bike lane is needed to maintain a comfortable riding experience for less confident bicyclists. Installing a bike lane for this portion of the corridor will result in the removal of some metered parking.

The remainder of this project corridor will result in a Neighborhood Bikeway. Neighborhood bikeways include design changes that help to maintain low traffic volumes and speeds. They also include navigational signage and enhanced pavement markings to communicate that bicyclists can share the travel lane.

Using a mix of design elements is critical to achieving lower overall travel speeds. Additionally, by slowing vehicles down, the street becomes less desirable as a cut-through street for vehicles. These changes in turn will also help to keep N Delaware St to a low traffic street.

Together, these changes create a more comfortable corridor to walk and bicycle along.

Question Title

* 1. How do you typically travel on this street? (Check all that apply)

Question Title

* 2. What activities do you typically use this street for? (Check all that apply)

Question Title

* 3. What are your top two concerns related to safety and mobility along this corridor today? (Check all that apply)

Question Title

* 4. Changes to the street along the neighborhood bikeway portion of Delaware Ave/5th Ave are recommended to reduce the amount of cut-through traffic along the corridor, while still providing access to local residents, businesses and visitors. Minimizing cut-through traffic and prioritizing local access along the street will make walking and biking along the street safer and more comfortable.

How interested are you in changes to the street that reduce traffic and prioritize mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists?

Question Title

* 9. The project proposes the removal of some metered parking along the west side of Delaware Ave, south of W 7th Ave. Repurposing this small block of parking will provide space to install a dedicated bike lane along the entire stretch of this corridor. Bike lanes are linked to increased safety for all roadway users, by helping to moderate travel speeds, improving sight lines at intersections, decreasing crashes, and improving predictability of all roadway interactions.

How interested are you in this change to the street to improve the comfort and safety for all roadway users?
