Upcoming Dates

  • Sept. 13: Public hearing is scheduled to be held at the TAB meeting.

Project Goals

Enhance multimodal safety, access and connectivity on East Arapahoe by:

  • Completing gaps in the pedestrian and multi-use path network
  • Creating off-street pedestrian and bicycle connections to local and regional transit service
  • Enhancing nine bus stops with shelters, trash receptacles and other amenities to provide a safe and comfortable environment for waiting transit passengers

Proposed Design

Based on community feedback gathered through public meetings and a questionnaire, staff have developed a proposed design for the East Arapahoe Multi-Use Paths and Transit Stops Project.

The proposed design features:

  • The addition of a 12-foot multi-use path and 8-foot landscape buffer where it can be accommodated within the existing public right-of-way (view mock-up).
  • In limited segments east of Eisenhower Drive, a 10-foot multi-use path and 2 to 8-foot landscaped buffer
  • Buffer landscaping throughout the corridor, with some hardscape buffers in appropriate locations
  • Enhancements to 10 transit stops along the corridor
