Will wonders never cease?

It turns out they are fixing the streets from 15th & Valencia to 19th & Valencia. And thatt's not the end of it. The plan will include all sorts of other goodies that are being implemented on that area of Valencia. Things like widening the sidewalks to put up more trees (evergreen trees!) and outdoor furniture and public art. Left-hand turn lanes will be eliminated as will illegal loading and parking zones and bike lanes will be made wider. All told, the plan is to create a Valencia Street that emphasizes "diversity, flexibility, and 'uni-uniformity.'" There's actually a whole lot more to plan, so if you want to look through, here's a listing and you can also check out this neato powerpoint presentation about it.
