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.
The project also promotes future transit-oriented development surrounding the RTD I-25 & Broadway Light Rail Transit Station.
Beginning Wednesday, September 28 through Tuesday, October 4, Mississippi will close from Broadway to Santa Fe Drive for storm sewer improvements and utility work within the South Broadway intersection. Traffic will be detoured to West Alameda to the north and West Iowa to the south. Mississippi traffic approaching Broadway from the east will be required to turn right on Broadway. Two lanes will remain open on Broadway as conditions allow.
Pedestrian and bicycle access will be maintained.
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. Lane closures will remain in place to preserve the construction zone. This area will have congestion during rush hours.
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.
The South Broadway project has been divided into a series of six construction phases. The project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2017.
Phase 1 - 85% complete, expected completion in September
