Officials are designing possible improvements for the 16th Street corridor between 7th and 11th avenues aiming to:

  • Slow the speed on 16th Street to improve safety
  • Create a walkable environment
  • Revitalize the corridor
  • Maintain as much parking as possible
  • Increase the connection between UNC and downtown

Project Background

On the edge of the downtown area and the northern side of the University of Northern Colorado campus, 16th Street needs to support many forms of transportation.

Much of the area lacks bike facilities, and sidewalks are too narrow. This vital corridor also needs more landscaping and consistent designs to support all the different businesses and activities that use 16th Street.

    How are you proposing to maintain traffic flow since 16th Street is one of the main streets from east to west?

    RingNeck asked 5 months ago

    Working on the project, staff analyzed how traffic moves through the area now and how different designs would affect that— accounting for current and projected 2041 numbers. 

    The analysis showed the roundabout included in the latest designs would improve traffic flow from how it is now.

    If you want to see the latest designs, staff presented them at the July 12 city council work session. Check out the latest update on this page for the video.
