One of the most attractive assets of this property is its access to a variety of transportation modes. The property is adjacent to highly traveled U.S. 36, to a bus-commuter transfer facility at 88th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard, to a commuter rail station planned at the south edge of the project site, and to extensive pedestrian/bicycle trails.

Sheridan Boulevard is a major four- and six-lane north/south arterial street within the Denver metro area. In 2007, 46,500 vehicles per day used Sheridan Boulevard between U.S. 36 and 88th Avenue, abutting the site.
88th Avenue, a six-lane arterial street, abuts the southern edge of the site. In 2007, 29,800 vehicles per day traveled on 88th Avenue between Sheridan Boulevard and Harlan Street.
92nd Avenue, a six-lane east/west arterial street, abuts the northern edge of the site. In 2007, 27,300 vehicles per day traveled on 92nd Avenue between Sheridan Boulevard and Harlan Street.

The Westminster Center park-n-Ride operated by the Regional Transportation District is located on both sides of U.S. 36 and is immediately across Sheridan Boulevard from the site. Approximately 1,546 people per weekday board at this facility, with approximately 498 buses per day serving this park-n-Ride. Plans are in place to extend the current U.S. 36 high occupancy vehicle/bus lane all the way west to Boulder, which will further increase the U.S. 36 transit corridor ridership.
An Environmental Impact Study is nearing completion for the Denver-Boulder rail line called Northwest Rail, the 41-mile “FasTracks” commuter rail line between Denver and Boulder. The study projects that the 88th Avenue/Harlan Street Station (across from the site) to be one of the most heavily used in the corridor. Concept plans for the station include a pedestrian overpass connecting the site to the rail station as well as accommodating station parking on the site.
