DENVER (KDVR) — Denver’s Shared Streets program is not ending, but it is changing.
Seven of Denver’s closed streets are returning to pre-COVID-19 configurations, and five streets are receiving some new additions.
The Shared Streets initiative was created to give densely populated neighborhoods more room for residents to move around by blocking traffic.
Five of the seven roadways will be receiving bike lanes and more traffic-slowing measures to ease travel by bike.
These five roadways include:
- Byron Place
- Bayaud Avenue
- 30th Street
- Marion Parkway
- East 16th Avenue
If you are a resident of these neighborhoods, now is the time to get used to walking back on the sidewalk.
