City of Denver asks for public input on new ‘high comfort’ bike lanes

The city of Denver is asking for the public’s input on eight “high comfort” bike lanes scheduled to be built in 2020.

The eight bike lanes are funded by the Elevate Denver Bond, approved by voters in 2017. The bond will put $18 million toward 125 miles of bike lanes over the next five years.

The city says the latest eight “high comfort” bikes lanes are seen as the “future backbones of the bike network,” ensuring the bike network is better connected to schools, parks, trails, transit and existing bike facilities.
