The Walnut Street Corridor Improvement project is headed by Denver Public Works and the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative (NDCC) and is one of several City projects underway that are building a better, greener, and more connected North Denver. Initial improvements will be installed in Summer of 2017. Following these enhancements, the city will begin a study of the entire roadway to determine long-term needs along this changing corridor.
Phase 2 — Beginning Fall 2017
The city will launch a full study of traffic conditions to determine the complete needs for Walnut Street along this stretch, including a possible two-way conversion. We will consider residential and commercial demand on the roadway as well as future development.
Open House #3 Wednesday, May 23
Open House #2 Wednesday, February 28
Open House Wednesday, November 29
Phase 1 — Winter 2016 to Summer 2017
Install “curb stops” to define parking and walking spaces from Broadway to 36th Street. These dividers are similar to the concrete blocks cars park against in parking lots. They are typically rectangular in shape and made of hard plastic or other material.
