With the goal of making bicycling in Denver a safe and viable transportation option for people of all abilities, the city will be installing 125 miles of new bikeways over the next five years, increasing the number households within a 5-minute ride of a high-comfort bike facility from 38 to 75 percent. 50 of the 125 miles of new bikeways will be funded by $18M from the Elevate Denver Bond, approved by voters in 2017.
Public meetings are planned in April and May to educate residents about eight (8) high-comfort, bond-funded bikeways that will be installed in 2020 that will add about 9 miles of bikeways to the city’s network. Other meeting locations and times are listed below and at www.denvergov.org/bikeprogram.
The high comfort bikeways will provide:
· Dedicated space on the street for people who drive cars and ride bikes
· Street designs that lower the stress of riding and reduce potential conflicts between bikes and cars
· A convenient and more viable way for people to get around safely
· Better connections to the places people want to go, such as schools, parks, trails and transit.
