Tell us how to make better connections

Fun, food trucks and finding better connections to W Line 

Help Lakewood identify better ways to make connections for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists to the W Line by marking up a giant, walkable map of part of Lakewood. Grab a bite to eat at the same time from some of the area’s best food trucks during the West Rail Access Study event, 1-3 p.m., Oct. 19 in the plaza at the Wadsworth Station for the W Line at West 13th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard.

Residents, business owners and community members will be able to walk on the 25-foot-by-25-foot map of the study area laid out in the Wadsworth Station plaza to indicate where they think improvements such as sidewalk connections, signs, intersection changes and more could be made to make it easier to get to the five eastern Lakewood stations for the W Line.

The event is part of the City’s West Rail Access Study, which has included the City monitoring travel conditions in the neighborhoods surrounding the W Line since its opening. This event will provide results from that monitoring and gather ideas for future projects to get the neighborhoods better connected to the line.

Come enjoy some of the festival-type activities: 

    • Take bicycle tours around the nearby neighborhoods 

    • Eat from some of the area’s top food trucks 

    • Join in the transportation toolbox effort by drawing your ideas on the Lakewood map 

    • Share your ideas and comments with City staff and your neighbors
