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. 

Project Features

  • Replacing the asphalt surface along South Broadway from Kentucky to Arizona with concrete, which has a longer life span
  • Enhancements for pedestrians and people on bikes, including the construction of multi-use paths and new street and pedestrian lighting
  • Planting of trees
  • Replacing the signals at Broadway/Tennessee and Broadway/Mississippi
  • Upgrading waterlines

The project also promotes future transit-oriented development surrounding the RTD I-25 & Broadway Light Rail Transit Station.

Construction Updates - November 2016

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.
