Thanks for helping us make bicycling on Syracuse Street safer. The 2016 City and County of Denver (CCD) Quebec Street Alternatives Analysis Study recommended adding bike lanes to Syracuse Street to provide a north-south route for bicycles in close proximity to the Quebec corridor, while complementing the neighborhood’s unique character. Denver Public Works is now designing new bicycle facilities along Syracuse Street between E. 8th Ave. and E. 26th Ave and seeking input from community members regarding the proposed facilities.

2. Below are preliminary concept designs for the three sections of Syracuse Street. Please review the information below and provide your feedback in section five.

Per Denver Bikeway Design Guidelines, determining the appropriate bicycle facility is based on roadway configuration, speed, and average annual daily traffic volume. In addition, other factors to be considered beyond speed and volume include traffic mix of automobiles and heavy vehicles, the presence of on-street parking, intersection density, surrounding land use, and roadway sight distance.

Proposed Bicycle Facility: Conventional Bike Lanes

<span style="font-size: 10pt;">Syracuse Street between E. 11th Ave. and Montview Blvd.<br>Proposed Bicycle Facility: Conventional Bike Lanes<br></span>
Why was this facility type selected? 
  • Provides dedicated space for bicyclists with improved separation from vehicles
  • Minimal impact to existing parking utilization
  • Per Denver Bikeway Design Guidelines, appropriate facility type due to low vehicular travel speeds and low to moderate traffic volumes, and number of existing travel lanes
