Provide feedback on the Alameda Avenue Corridor Study
Many of the Denver metro area’s major arterials conjure a distinct identity when mentioned: Colfax is Denver’s first main street, Broadway is its commercial spine, Hampden is a gateway to the mountains. Alameda is equal to those corridors in its importance for regional mobility, but it lacks identity. To most, Alameda is just a street, not a place. And it is a street with issues.
Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) is leading a study of Alameda Avenue in partnership with the City and County of Denver, Aurora, Lakewood, Glendale, the Colorado Department of Transportation, and the Regional Transportation District (RTD). The goal is to develop a shared vision for the corridor from Wadsworth Blvd., in Lakewood to the R-Line in Aurora.
The study aims to improve mobility and safety for all users and plan for future transit investments, while still preserving the character of the corridor. The study will identify mobility and safety issues and result in recommendations for transportation improvements that will enhance the corridor – making it safer and more accessible for all road users.
This study is part of the DRCOGs Corridor Planning Program. This corridor was selected because it is currently as a corridor on the High Injury Network in the Denver Regional Council of Government’s Taking Action of Regional Vision Zero Plan, is identified in the 2019 RTD Bus Rapid Transit Feasibility Study and Denver Moves: Transit Plan, and is currently included in the 2050 Regional Transportation Plan as a future bus rapid transit corridor.
