Rehabilitation of the Park Avenue Viaduct reaches major milestone as paving activities begin

DENVER — The City and County of Denver and Hamilton Construction Company have reached a major milestone on the Park Avenue Bridge and Roadway Improvement Project from the Platte River east to Wazee Street.

Crews have completed bridge and wall repairs and are now paving and waterproofing the roadway surface. This paving work will require intermittent and extended lane closures on both inbound and outbound Park Avenue through spring 2022. During extended lane closures, two lanes of traffic will be maintained in both directions. Pedestrian access will also be maintained throughout the project duration.

Motorists are encouraged to sign up for travel updates by contacting the public information team at parkaveprojectco@gmail.com or 720-772-7703, as the work schedule is subject to change.

The voter approved Elevate Denver Bond program is providing a portion of the funding for the bridge rehabilitation project.
