DENVER BIKEWAY DESIGN PROJECTS
Muller helped Denver enhance its bicycle infrastructure with three significant projects that aimed to improve safety, accessibility, and connectivity for cyclists throughout the city.
Green Valley Ranch Boulevard Protected Bike Lanes: This project included the design of two miles of protected bike lanes in each direction of Green Valley Ranch Boulevard between Tower Road and Picadilly Road. The project used 12 feet of excess pavement in each direction of the roadway to install protected bike lanes as identified in the Denver Moves Bicycle plan and the Denver Go Bond program. This project also addressed transit and pedestrian access by developing compatible design elements at pedestrian crossings and bus stops. The project was completed using pavement marking paint and vertical posts, avoiding the need for high-cost reconstruction.
CCD Bike Lane Design – Package 5: Package 5 of the Bike Lane Design task orders includes nine corridors in west Denver totaling 18.5 miles of on-street bike lanes. The bike lanes were installed as part of Denver’s street resurfacing program. The design plans were not intended to be standalone bid-packages, but instead Denver provided them to its signing and striping on-call maintenance contractor for installation of the bike lanes during planned resurfacing work. Bike lanes and all associated improvements were completed within the existing curb-to-curb street width. Minor modifications to existing traffic signals were included at some intersections.
South Central Community Network Design Services: The task orders for the South Central area of the Community Networks Design project included six corridors in south central Denver totaling 9.6 miles of on-street bike lanes and neighborhood bikeways. The corridors included protected bike lanes, buffered bike lanes and neighborhood bikeways. In addition, one corridor included the design of a new traffic signal. The designs included curb extensions, traffic circles, traffic diversions, floating parking, and median pedestrian refuges. The Muller team completed three traffic signal design modifications to incorporate bicycle signals and completed six traffic signal work orders to incorporate bicycle-specific signal timing. Four corridors are currently under construction or complete, while the final two corridors are under final design.
