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, completed in 2023, identified a corridor vision for phased improvements that address safety, reduce congestion, improve operations, and enhanced opportunity to travel by walking, biking, wheeling, scooting, or taking transit.
