​In May of 2017 CDOT facilitated a one-week separated bicycle lane demonstration project which was sponsored by Open Streets 704, with support from the Plaza-Midwood Stroll and Roll advocacy group. The boundaries of the project were along The Plaza, from Central Avenue to Belvedere Avenue. The results of the demonstration project and public feedback from local residents are summarized in a report, which can be accessed by clicking on this link.   

With the success of the demonstration project and neighborhood support, the City plans to implement a permanent street conversion project. The limits of the street conversion are along The Plaza; from Central Avenue to Mecklenburg Avenue. Please note that a separate City project is being undertaken along Parkwood Avenue and The Plaza, which will include modifications to the signalized intersection.   

  • Modify The Plaza in a way that includes provisions for pedestrians, bicyclists and motor vehicles.

  • Create a project that is supported by the Plaza-Midwood community.

  • Increase pedestrian and bicycle connectivity to the LYNX Blue Line Parkwood Avenue Station, via the Parkwood Avenue project.

  • April 25, 2019- Plaza-Midwood Neighborhood Association quarterly meeting

  • August 28, 2018 presentation to the Bicycle Advisory Committee

  • June 26, 2018 presentation to the Bicycle Advisory Committee

  • May 31, 2018 at the Belmont Center

Funding allocated for this project is $500,000 and does not include bond funding. Thus, improvements will be limited in scope to match this available funding.
