Englewood looks to make life easier for cyclists

City adding signage, striping for bicycle lanes along Dartmouth Avenue

Posted

Cycling is about to get a little easier for Englewood residents thanks to new upcoming signs and striping for bicycle lanes.

Englewood is hoping to finish installing signs and roadway striping for bicycle lanes in each direction along Dartmouth Avenue, according to the city’s website. The project, contracted through Colorado Barricade, will feature bike lanes that extend between Inca Street and University Avenue.

Here are some goals about the new signs and bicycle lanes from the city’s website:

• Increase awareness of cyclists who are riding along Dartmouth Avenue.

• Improve local and regional bicycle connections with ties to Denver bicycle facilities and connections to the Little Dry Creek Trail and the Mary Carter Greenway.

• Have minimal impacts on intersection operations and congestion.

• Make cycling safer on Dartmouth Avenue.

The city also will get to work on the Oxford Avenue First and Last Mile Bicycle Facility Connection project, thanks to a grant from the Denver Regional Council of Governments.

Citizens on bicycles can look forward to better connectivity to the Oxford Light Rail Station, Swedish Medical Center and Craig Hospital campuses.

From Windermere Street to Broadway, the project features will include a continuous bicycle lane in each direction, an automobile travel lane in each direction and bicycle detection improvements at the Windermere and Broadway traffic signals, according to the city’s website.

Bicycle detection improvements at the Logan Street intersection traffic signal and shared lane bicycle street markings on each block will also be added from Broadway to Clarkson Street as part of the project.
