Street grid (Denver-Aurora Metropolitan Area)

Summary

A uniform street-naming system is used in the Denver-Aurora Metropolitan Area, covering Denver, Adams, Arapahoe, Jefferson, and parts of Broomfield and northern Douglas County. However, there are significant areas within the metro area that do not conform to the master grid of street names below. Northern Douglas County, save for the names of the major arterials extending into Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, and Parker, falls into this category. Also, a significant area in unincorporated Adams County generally bounded by bounded by 70th, Pecos, 88th, and York largely has its own street names. Finally, the City of Littleton has largely maintained its own set of names, though these names are interspersed with the metropolitan street grid names.

Broomfield is an interesting case. Recent development in that area has seen a merging of Boulder County addressing and Broomfield names with Metro Denver addressing and names. A drive up a recently completed stretch of Sheridan Boulevard illustrates this fact. Cross streets are ordered 14th Ave, 15th Ave, 134th Ave, 18th Ave, 136th Ave, etc. Generally, the boundaries follow the old county boundaries along 120th and Sheridan, but addressing has become messy for developers north of 144th within Broomfield.

Finally, Jefferson County has different names for its major east-west arterials than does Arapahoe County. South of Belleview, the order goes; Bowles, Coal Mine, Ken Caryl, and Chatfield. In Arapahoe County, the order goes Belleview, Orchard, Arapahoe, Dry Creek, and County Line.

This list represents the extent of the master grid as of 2008. As a general rule, the grid is complete or mostly complete in all of Denver, Englewood, Aurora north of Colfax and west of Chambers, eastern Lakewood, and much of Wheat Ridge. In all other areas, streets follow a curvilinear pattern, and names are assigned to where the streets generally would fall on a grid.

East of Powhaton Road the grid names are incomplete, as this area is undeveloped, and the naming of streets ends with Quail Run Street.

The names of streets from Broadway east to Colorado Blvd. are not alphabetical.

The names of avenues south to Amherst, and from Union to Arapahoe, are not alphabetical.

The east-west meridian is Ellsworth Ave., and the north-south meridian is Broadway. Though Broadway is a major arterial, Ellsworth is a minor residential street.
