Bike Path Update

The Denver Department of Transportation & Infrastructure (DOTI) will build out 125 miles of bikeways between 2020 and 2023 to make it easier to travel the city by bicycle. These bikeways will be constructed in three focus areas: Northwest, Central, and South Central. 

They have uploaded the most recent drawings of the over 40 proposed bikeways and are encouraging the public to review these drawings and add input to inform current project designs and inform future improvements to the neighborhood: https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/23aa1f1e3e7d40a5aa870703b733a725
