5280 Trail to Provide “Places”, “links” and Revitalization – City has committed to helping with the first phase of urban trail on 21st street.  After years of talking about the 5280 Trail, city officials and private boosters who see the potential to strengthen neighborhoods stated they’re ready to launch into formal design work for the first section of the 5.3-mile trail. It could break ground along a small stretch of 21st Street in the next two years or so, and the city has committed $850,000 to get the ball rolling on designs. Denver Public Works says its contribution on 21st Street will cover early design work for most of that 11-block section, along with completed designs for a shorter-term demonstration project on a smaller segment that, once finished, would give the public a close-up view of the trail’s potential. As for the rest of the trail, it’s likely that construction will be done in phases over the next decade, following a route that’s mostly along secondary streets. Planners behind the 5280 Trail say it’s not intended to cater to the high-speed bicycle commuters who use Denver’s growing network of on-street bike lanes.
