    Open House on Bicycle Lane Study

    Jefferson County is hosting a public open house on the Bowles Avenue Bicycle Facility Study on Wednesday, Dec. 4 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. The meeting will be at Dakota Ridge High School, 13399 West Coal Mine Avenue.  It will be an opportunity for citizens to provide feedback and for staff to gauge the level of support for the study before proceeding with any further design.

    Jeffco recently adopted a bicycle plan which identified the Bowles Avenue corridor as having potential bicycle lanes. The bicycle lanes could connect the C-470 regional trail, Kipling Parkway regional trail and trails at Clement Park as well as numerous schools, churches, shopping areas, parks, etc.

    Staff recently conducted a study on the feasibility of implementing bicycle lanes on Bowles Avenue from C-470 to Grant Ranch Boulevard. The potential project would require the removal of one through lane in each direction for a significant portion of the corridor.

    To learn more about the county’s bicycle and pedestrian plans or to view the Bowles Avenue Bicycle Facility Study, visit the Jeffco Transportation & Engineering web page.
