Colfax Corridor Connections Seeks Community Input

Colfax Corridor Connections Public Meetings:
February 27th & 28th

Denver Public Works, in coordination with the City of Aurora, will host a second round of public meetings seeking input regarding the Colfax Corridor Connections project. This transportation planning study is in the process of identifying solutions to improve mobility and accessibility in the East Colfax corridor.

"Following months of analysis, the options that would provide the greatest transit, pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular improvements are coming into focus," said Terry Ruiter, Colfax Corridor Connections Project Manager with the City and County of Denver. "By evaluating many different route and technology combinations, solutions are being identified for not only Colfax Avenue, but the entire study area, which is roughly bounded by I-25 to the west, I-225 to the east, 12th Avenue to the south and 20th Avenue to the north."

The public is encouraged to attend meetings held on February 27 in Denver and February 28 in Aurora. Briefings by the project team, along with informative displays, will help educate the community about the transportation solutions being recommended for further refinement and analysis. Both meetings will present the same information and provide opportunities for community members to submit feedback to the project team.
Denver Public Meeting: Wednesday, February 27, 2013
6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Knights of Columbus Hall
1555 Grant Street, Denver, CO 80203
     - This location is served by RTD bus routes: 6, 10, 15, 15L and 20
     - Bike racks available near main entrance
     - Free vehicular parking in lot at southeast corner of 16th Ave. and Grant St.

Aurora Public Meeting: Thursday, February 28, 2013
6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
North Middle School
12095 Montview Boulevard, Aurora, CO 80010
     - This location is served by RTD bus routes: 20, 89 and 121
     - Bike racks available near main entrance
     - Public access to the school through the main (south) doors only -- all other doors are locked
     - Free vehicular parking in the lot on the south side of school

When the study concludes in the fall of 2013, Colfax Corridor Connections will identify a set of multimodal transit and mobility solutions for those who live, work, and travel within the corridor. Funding must be identified before implementation can begin; however, the results of this study will provide the information needed to make informed decisions about transportation improvements that work toward a broad, cohesive, long-term plan for the East Colfax corridor.

Community input is essential to the success of this study. The Colfax Corridor Connections team is providing regular updates at, on Facebook and Twitter. You can also email the project team at or call the project hotline at (303) 223-6595.
