Work on the first sidewalks of the 2017 GO bond funds. (Kevin J. Beaty/Denverite)
Good morning! If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen the news flash that I was planning a BCycle excursion yesterday. You’ll be happy to know that by the time I grabbed a bike at Denver Health for a ride into town in the early afternoon, skies were sunny, seats were dry and baskets had only a wee bit of ice.
Things have not been going so smoothly for Denver sidewalks (on which I would NEVER ride). But the city has taken a step toward changing that, and Kevin was there to watch the likes of Denver Parks and Recreation manager Happy Haynes and City Councilman Kevin Flynn smooth pavement for new sidewalks in the Bear Valley neighborhood along Bear Valley Park, where such pedestrian pathways had not existed.
