Neighborhood Bikeway: S Sherman St – E Mississippi Ave to E Harvard Ave

The Denver Department of Transportation and Infrastructure is working with communities to create complete transportation networks, by planning multimodal networks and rapidly building out high-comfort bicycle and pedestrian safety 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!

Question Title

Image
S Sherman St is proposed to become a neighborhood bikeway. Neighborhood bikeways include design changes that help to maintain low traffic volumes and speeds, and often allow for parking to largely be maintained throughout the corridor. They also include added signage and pavement markings to communicate the shared condition of the road. By slowing down vehicles and discouraging cut through traffic, neighborhood bikeways become comfortable shared streets which are prioritized for people walking, biking, and making local vehicle trips.

This project also includes a strong connection across I-25 with a proposed shared use path along Mississippi and Logan Streets. This will provide a critical north/south connection for the network and improved crossings for people walking and biking. A shared use path provides separated space for bicycles to travel in both directions.

* 1. Have you read information about this project already? (Check all that apply) Note: if you have not read this information yet, you can do so by clicking here.

Question Title

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

Question Title

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

Question Title

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

Question Title

* 5. Changes to the street 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.

Question Title

* 11. Projects often require tradeoffs.

Identify your two (2) most important priorities for the proposed improvements to this corridor.

Question Title

* 12. Changes are proposed to the intersection of S Sherman St and W Mississippi Ave that could limit certain vehicle movements to make a safer crossing for all road users. How interested are you in changes to the street that make this intersection safer to cross as a pedestrian or bicyclist?

Question Title

* 13. Changes are proposed to S Logan St north of I-25 that would provide a strong network connection to the planned neighborhood bikeway on E Kentucky Ave. This could repurpose parking on parts of Logan St between I-25 and Kentucky Ave (1 block) to make a safer connection. How interested are you in changes to the street that prioritize mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists?

Question Title

* 14. Changes to the intersection of S Sherman Street and E Evans Avenue are recommended to create a safer crossing and better connectivity for bicycles and pedestrians along the corridor. Implementing an enhanced crossing will make the intersection more comfortable and safe for people walking and biking.

Identify your top two (2) treatments you would prefer to enhance the crossing.

Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon:  Hybrid beacons are used to improve bike and pedestrian crossings of major streets in locations where installation of a conventional traffic signal is not possible. Hybrid beacons may also be used at mid-block crossing locations (e.g., trail crossings).

Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB):  RRFBs are button-activated flashing lights used in combination with a pedestrian, bicycle, school, or trail crossing warning sign to improve safety at uncontrolled, marked crosswalks. The RRFB is a device used in combination with pedestrian warning signs to provide a high-visibility strobe-like warning to drivers when pedestrians use a crosswalk.

Toucan Signal:  A TOUCAN (TwO groUps CAN cross) signal provides a signal-protected crossing for bicyclists and pedestrians at major streets. Cyclists approaching the intersection are guided into a raised center median, where they push a button to cross. Cars traveling down the street are required to turn right at the intersection, helping to protect cyclists from through traffic conflicts.
