The City has a grant for a separate bike and pedestrian project along Tennyson that is currently in design. The intersection of 60th and Tennyson is within both projects' boundaries. In order to streamline the work, this project is on hold until design work is complete on Tennyson. The City is working to have both projects occur at the same time to minimize disruption in the area. Design for the other project is expected to be complete by the end of 2023.
About the project
In an effort to improve non-motorized transportation to the RTD G Line, the City is planning to construct a new two-way separated bike lane between Tennyson Street and the RTD station entrance to the Arvada Gold Strike-Sheridan Station. This project will be the second of its kind in the City and the longest two way separated bike lane at approximately ¼ mile. This bike lane will connect to new bike lanes on Tennyson St to create a safe, connected bikeway between the Clear Creek Trail and the Arvada Gold Strike Station.
The design minimizes impacts to existing infrastructure and will utilize the space on the south side of the street where parking was previously allowed for the two-way bike lane. Parking along the north side of the street where there are residential properties will remain. Below is an image of the proposed cross section.
