The Colfax Corridor Connections project is studying potential long-term mobility improvements for East Colfax Avenue to enhance and revitalize this signature corridor.
Colfax Avenue has long been a key east-west transportation route for Downtown Denver, Auraria Campus, Anschutz Medical Campus and nearly 50 schools — it is also a thriving community, with retail, nightlife and residential development creating a “Main Street” feel along one of the area’s oldest, most historic streets.
The City and County of Denver is working on an area plan that includes the Bluebird District. Bluebird District board members are actively participating in the steering committee for this effort. The plan will include a higher level and long-term vision for the area and provide guidance on policy revisions, design guidelines and how people move about and through our communities. For more information and updates please visit denvergov.org.
The Bluebird District is looking for a local Denver artist to design and install functional art in the district. Functional Art will serve a community need, such as seating or bike parking, and also be a creative and engaging artistic element on Colfax Ave. Please see the document for more details and the deadline to submit.
Colfaxians recently helped the Colfax Collaborative secure $500,000 in 2017 city funding to design streetscape and safety improvements along the corridor. However, this is only the beginning.

You can help get Colfax on the 2017 bond list by providing input at upcoming meetings to discuss GO Bond priorities. Here’s why we believe Colfax deserves funding: Great […]
A group of four business improvement districts along Colfax Avenue is appealing to Denver City Council and mayor’s office to add money to the city’s 2017 budget to benefit the corridor.
The West Colfax, Colfax, Bluebird and Colfax Mayfair improvement districts have teamed up to form the Colfax Collaborative and is asking for $500,000 in next year’s budget to get the ball rolling on improvements that would help pedestrians navigate the corridor. The four districts span a little more than 9 miles of Colfax between Sheridan Avenue and Yosemite Street.
