Images released Oct. 2 by the city of Denver show what a reconfigured 16th Street Mall could look like.

Mall advocates including the city, the Downtown Denver Partnership and RTD are in the middle of a National Environmental Policy Act study on the mall, which is federally mandated to help determine the mall's future.

The study is expected to wrap up in June 2018. At that time, final design plans can begin, unless the study determines that the best course on the mall is to take no action.

The design concepts can be viewed here.
