Denver Public Works is studying the possibility of converting one-way streets into two-way streets in three areas in and around downtown.
The studies were launched in response to development at Denver Union Station, in the Uptown neighborhood and anticipated development along Welton Street in the central business district, said Crissy Fanganello, public works director of planning and sustainability.
“We’re always looking at downtown as a transportation system and how are things changing as transit comes online,” Fanganello said.
“In a lot of ways [the studies] are not anything new, but in the last 18 months there’s been renewed interest because of the development and changes. We’re looking at how changes to traffic might be done, but we have to look at the whole system,” she said.
The three areas under discussion for converting to two-way traffic are:
• Welton Street between 15th and 17th streets, or one block on either side of the 16th Street Mall in the central business district.
• 19th Avenue, between Broadway and Park Avenue, and 20th Avenue between Lincoln Street to Park Avenue in Uptown, northeast of downtown.
• 18th Street between Wynkoop and Blake streets by Denver Union Station in LoDo.
