ACTION ALERT: Support the South Marion Parkway protected bike lane project this Thursday!

by Jessica Vargas on November 4, 2019

Denver Public Works planners are moving ahead with a protected bike lane design on South Marion Parkway! The Denver Streets Partnership needs your help this week to show the continued support of local residents and bicyclists at the design meeting this Thursday.

Thursday, November 7, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Steele Elementary School, 320 S. Marion Parkway

We’re asking attendees to wear blue to show your support for the safety improvements and if you are able, to prepare some brief comments about why these safety improvements are personally important to you and your family. A meeting moderator will allow attendees to line up to make comments at a standing microphone.

South Marion Parkway is one of the eight high-comfort bikeway projects funded by the Elevate Denver Bond Program that 73% of Denver voters approved in 2017. This bike lane is one of the most heavily used North-South connectors in Denver, connecting the Cherry Creek Trail to Washington Park. A physical barrier between people riding bikes and motor vehicle traffic means more road users will be able to safely enjoy the street. Benefits of the project also include a less stressful environment for kids and parents riding to school at Steele Elementary, and reduced friction due to the frequent loading and unloading in front of the Park Lane apartments. No parking will be removed from the street in its current design.

Learn more about the proposed project by watching the video below and visiting the Denver Streets Partnership website. Thank you for taking the time to support this important safety project. We look forward to seeing you (in blue!) on Thursday.
