ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW AND PERMITTING STATUS
COMPLETION DATE OF ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW AND PERMITTING
The City and County of Denver, Regional Transportation District, Downtown Denver Partnership, and Federal Transit Administration (Project Partners) have completed the 16th Street Mall Environmental Assessment (EA), which identifies a Preferred Alternative to reconstruct the 16th Street Mall between Market Street and Broadway. The project plans include reconstructing the historic 16th Street Mall to address infrastructure, mobility, safety, and public use needs. The project will install a new granite paver system with improved surface friction and proper drainage. The spatial reconfiguration will create wider pedestrian areas with trees on both sides of each block. Transit lanes would be consolidated in the center of the Mall, and the Free MallRide service would continue.
