The Community Transportation Networks are made up of three broad zones within Denver, including Northwest, Central, and South Central. The aim for the networks is to improve mobility for all users navigating Denver, whether on foot, bike, car, or transit. The City of Denver identified 125 miles of bikeways to be implemented by 2023, and different corridors are flagged to become protected bike lanes or neighborhood bikeways after being studied in various plans since 2011. These recommendations informed and kickstarted a robust public engagement process and research/analysis of existing conditions. The bikeway recommendations act as a jumping-off point for the community to voice concerns about mobility in their neighborhood, and the Community Transportation Networks initiative sorts through those concerns and requests to collaboratively work with different departments within the City to get projects implemented under the One Build approach.
Livable Cities Studio is working as a sub-consultant to Fehr and Peers, leading two corridors within the Central Community Transportation Network – Delgany/Denargo Streets and 21st Street through City Park and City Park West. Livable Cities is carrying out the initial existing conditions research and analysis for the two corridors, taking part in public engagement efforts, developing mobility alternatives and advancing conceptual designs.
