Over the next two years, 6th Street is expected to change dramatically as a result of the multi-million dollar Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) project to demolish and realign the Grand Avenue-State Highway 82 Bridge over the Colorado River. The goal of the planning effort, which kicked off in January 2016, is to anticipate public improvements that the Grand Avenue Bridge project will set in motion such as streetscape improvements, bike facilities, public parking, and neighborhood gathering areas.
Beginning in January and continuing through December, 2016, the city and key stakeholders, including area property owners, businesses and residents, have been working with studioINSITE, a Denver-based urban planning & design firm, to create a future vision of the 6th Street corridor & the North Glenwood neighborhood.

Public Open Houses
studioINSITE met with the public at open house events in January, February, May, and September, 2016. These were well-attended events that generated a lot of comments and good ideas.
