In 2016, when the U.S. 36 Express Lanes
project is complete, it won't be just drivers enjoying a quicker trip to
Denver. The project also includes an 18-mile separated bike pathway that will
allow cyclists and pedestrians to go from Boulder to Westminster all without
ever interacting with traffic.

cyclists, the new pathway is more about mobility and accessibility than catering
to riders who would use it to commute.
