What's Happening
Alameda Ave Corridor Study
Posted on Nov 7th, 2023

Alameda Ave. is one of streets that defines the borders of Cherry Creek East.  Alameda is equal to some of the City’s major corridors, such as Colfax being Denver’s first main street and Hampden being the gateway to the mountains, in its importance for regional mobility but it lacks identity.  To most, Alameda is just a street, not a place and a street spanning many miles with multiple issues.
 
Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) is leading the Alameda Avenue Study that aims to improve mobility and safety for all users and plan for future transit investments, while still preserving the character of the corridor.  Cherry Creek East has been identified by the study’s steering committee as one neighborhood that will be specifically impacted by the Alameda Corridor Study.  
 
What is the current status of the study?  DRCOG recently wrapped up the analysis of transportation, crash, and infrastructure data along the corridor.  They have also completed their first round of engagement, focused on priorities for the corridors, concerns people have with how Alameda operates today, and ideas for the future.  For a summary of highlights of the existing conditions analysis click HERE.  
 
What is the next step of the Study?  DRCOG is now developing draft recommendations and plans to go out to the communities to share these draft recommendations and gather additional feedback.  This information was presented during our March 28, 2024 Annual Meeting.  A copy of this presentation is posted HERE.
