Projects - 1D: Streets and Public Works

Downtown Streets
Better Denver logo
Our street maintenance has not been keeping pace with our growth in population and traffic. Until recently, we've been trying to catch up on repairing potholes that were developing because we weren’t able to afford better and longer term maintenance solutions.
 
Now, bond funding will help move us in the right direction.  In addition to better maintenance, 1D will help increase traffic capacity in targeted areas, and help make Denver more pedestrian friendly and sustainable.
