Street Paving Rolls Out in Downtown Denver This Week
Weekly Paving Updates Posted Online at denvergov.org/denverpaving
DENVER – Street paving season is in full swing in Denver, and this week, Denver Public Works paving crews will roll to Downtown Denver to improve approximately 85 blocks! Crews will work to complete each street as quickly as possible and minimize impacts to traffic, residents and businesses. The work downtown is expected to begin today and last through mid-September.
The blocks that will be resurfaced downtown are primarily within the boundaries of Colfax Avenue, Broadway, Speer Boulevard and Wynkoop Street. Milling and paving will occur Monday through Friday from 7:00am to 3:30pm, with the goal to visit each stretch of roadway twice: once to remove the old asphalt and again to pave. The work has been scheduled to avoid impacts to Colorado Rockies games and special events.
Weekly paving schedules are posted online at denvergov.org/denverpaving. With the paving schedule subject to change, Denver Public Works suggests residents visit the website for updates each week and to view the streets scheduled to be paved this year.
The first stretches to be improved downtown as part of this year’s street paving program include:
2017-18 Downtown Paving Program
Denver Public Works provided a smoother ride on several streets downtown last year (approximately 100 blocks). More streets are being improved this year to keep people moving safely and efficiently. Before that, Denver had not paved its Central Business District since 2003, so improvements were due!
