On this page you can find information about on-going and recently completed projects that help people walk and bicycle around Arvada.

This improvement represents several “firsts” for Arvada: the first two-way separated bike lane and first green bike crossing markings.The wide bike lane is separated from vehicle traffic by flex-posts and is marked for two way bike traffic. This allows for pedestrians to use the existing sidewalk to cross the street and bicyclists to have their own dedicated space on the street to access the crosswalk and crossing. Bicyclists will still be required to wait for the pedestrian crossing signal before proceeding across Ward Road.
Additionally, the City will be installing green bike crossing markings for people bicycling from south to north to access the Ralston Creek Trail. The green pavement markings bring attention to the bike lane, and to make bicyclists and drivers aware that this is an area where their paths cross. Drivers making left or right turns should yield to a bicyclist going northbound on Ward Road.
W 52nd Avenue Walkway: Construct missing walkway from Reed St to Marshall St. Currently evaluating two alternatives for design.
W 60th Avenue Separated Bike Lane: In an effort to improve non-motorized transportation to the RTD G Line the City is planning to construct a new two-way separated bike lane between Tennyson Street and the RTD station entrance to the Arvada Gold Strike-Sheridan Station.
W 57th Avenue Bicycle Boulevard: This study will look at measures to improve safety for people bicycling, walking, and driving. The study will evaluate potential measures to improve bicycling, reduce speeding, improve intersection safety, and improve pedestrian crossings. Be on the lookout for future information on public meetings (virtual) and SpeakUP Arvada engagement.
