US 36 Bikeway: A Highway for Cyclists


US 36 Bikeway Update – July 16, 2019

Due to the damage to US 36 between Wadsworth Boulevard and Church Ranch Boulevard, the US 36 Bikeway surrounding that area has been indefinitely closed due to safety concerns and construction. CDOT, along with the cities of Broomfield and Westminster have determined this route to be the safest detour option during this time.

Please note there are no bike lanes but there are 8’ continuous sidewalks on the east and west sides of Westminster Blvd between 112th Ave and Promenade Dr. Please watch for driveway accesses if using sidewalks. Bike lanes and shoulders are inconsistent on 112th Ave. between Westminster Blvd and Parkland St. Bicycles may legally take the lane if there are no ridable shoulders or to avoid hazards.

Visit our Cycle page for a list and links to cycling resources throughout the region.

Please email with any questions regarding the US 36 Bikeway during this time.

At 18 miles in length and connecting the US 36 & Table Mesa Station in Boulder to 80th Avenue in Westminster, the 12-foot wide bikeway provides a safer ride for cyclists throughout the northwest metro region. Not only does the US 36 Bikeway help connect commuters to their workplace, but also to activity centers, local businesses, six RTD Stations and other local routes to communities throughout the northwest metro region.
