Denver Public Works is reconstructing a stretch of South Broadway from Kentucky to Arizona and a section of Mississippi Avenue between the Consolidated Main Line (CML) Railway and Sherman Street. The project, which began in March 2016 and is expected to continue through late 2017, will improve the roadway surface and enhance mobility for all users.
The project also promotes future transit-oriented development surrounding the RTD I-25 & Broadway Light Rail Transit Station.
Normal working hours will be Monday–Friday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, weather permitting. No work is expected at night. Occasional weekend work may be scheduled.
Mississippi Avenue is now open to traffic in both directions, with one lane available for westbound and eastbound travel. Work is continuing on the roadway and delays may still be possible.
Pedestrian and bicycle access will be maintained along West Mississippi during construction. Bicycles are encouraged to use the elevated sidewalk path while work is being done on the roadway. For the safety of pedestrians and others using the path, we recommend bicyclists dismount and walk through this section.
Some bus stops in the construction area may be unavailable. RTD has made accommodations for alternate bus stop locations; please see signs along Broadway or contact RTD for stop and route information.
