The city of Denver is preparing to turn several of its central streets from one-way to two-way, freeing you to drive in whichever direction you please — within certain constraints.

The $2.6 million proposal would convert the following blocks in North Cap Hill:

  • 19th Avenue from Broadway to Park Avenue West
  • 20th Avenue from Broadway to Park Avenue West
  • Grant Street from 18th Avenue to 20th Avenue
  • Logan Street from 18th Avenue to 20th Avenue

It also would add a new traffic signal at 19th and Clarkson, as well as bike-lane elements and storm drain infrastructure on the affected streets.

The idea received an early approval from the Land Use, Transportation & Infrastructure Committee and goes before the mayor and City Council on Tuesday.

The work is scheduled to happen within five months of approval. The city also recently converted part of Blake Street from one-way to two.
