Summary

Hampden Avenue (U.S. 285) is a critical element of the Colorado and the Denver metro area transportation network. The corridor has a long history of moving people and goods through and between the cities of Sheridan, Englewood, Cherry Hills Village and Denver, and provides essential commercial and regional access to the C470 and I-25 corridors. The study will examine the corridor through the following four segments:

  • Lowell Boulevard/Knox Court to Santa Fe Drive
  • Santa Fe Drive to Gilpin Street
  • Gilpin Street to Colorado Boulevard
  • Colorado Boulevard to 1-25

What is the primary goal of the study?

The primary goal of the Hampden Ave Mobility & Safety Study is to identify a corridor vision that can be translated into both short-term and long-term improvements that address safety concerns and include proposed actions for reducing congestion, improving operational performance, and addressing future transportation needs and multimodal options within the defined Hampden Avenue corridor. The project also looks to preserve community character and seek ways to enhance community amenities and/or placemaking.

Timeline

This project will be completed over the course of a 12-month period

Public Process & Upcoming Community Events

This project looks to both inform and engage with the community. This project will ensure everyone is heard and the corridor communities and stakeholders will contribute to a shared vision for improvements through a proactive approach that identifies issues, develops priorities and solutions while being mindful of impacts to local communities, regional commuters, and the environment.

Please check back regularly for upcoming engagement opportunities.
