Current Projects

CONSTRUCTION
South Broadway & Mississippi Avenue


Construction Update: January 2017

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 summer 2017, will improve the roadway surface and enhance mobility for all users. 

 

DESIGN
Broadway/I-25 Wedge Ramp


The current phase of the redesign and improvements to the Broadway/I-25 intersection will focus on the southbound on-ramps (from Broadway to southbound I-25) and the reconstruction of Broadway from Ohio Avenue to Exposition Avenue.

 

The City and County of Denver's Broadway Arizona to Exposition Project is anticipated to be constructed in several phases over several years. As each phase is funded for construction, the City and County of Denver (City) will follow the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) guidelines for acquisition of required properties within the project corridor. This guidance provides the City will follow their standard process of completing Right-of-Way plans, then City Council passing an ordinance authorizing property negotiations and acquisitions. Upon ordinance passage the City will contact affected property owners and begin the negotiation discussions, offers will be made after appraisals or value finds are completed. The City reserves the right to imminent domain, but will continue to negotiate to meet fair value agreements through the acquisition process.
