“Starting next week, Denver transportation workers will begin ending the temporary Shared Streets Initiative that began during the pandemic as a way to promote social distancing.
The program designated streets where people could safely walk, roll and recreate while maintaining some distance from one another. Areas prioritized for shared streets were those with greater population densities, where adjacent parks were seeing significant use and reaching capacity, and areas of the city without immediate access to a park or trail.
Paint and posts were added as traffic calming measures on Bayaud Avenue from Sherman to Downing Streets, and on 30th Street from Welton Street to Larimer Stree. They will remain in place and additional safety upgrades are planned for 2022 as the two stretches transition to becoming permanent neighborhood bikeways, according to DOTI.”
