Denver to Make the Park Avenue Bridge Better, Stronger

Published on March 24, 2021

DENVER — The City & County of Denver will begin bridge and roadway rehabilitation work this week on the elevated portion of Park Avenue from the Platte River to Wazee Street. The voter-approved Elevate Denver Bond Program is helping fund the maintenance project, that’s incorporating bridge repairs, traffic signal replacements at Wewatta and Delgany Streets, new concrete curb ramps, signage, and striping. The work is scheduled to be complete in Fall 2022. 

Starting this afternoon, drivers should expect intermittent single and/or double lane closures on Park Avenue, both inbound and outbound between Wazee Street and I-25. Crews will also be working at the Wewatta and Delgany intersections. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the project duration and work hours will be reduced for events at Coors Field to limit travel impacts. 

Message boards are in place in advance of the closures to alert commuters. The public’s patience and cooperation are appreciated. 

People are encouraged to sign up for project updates by contacting the project’s public information team at parkaveprojectco@gmail.com or 720-772-7703. Information will also be posted on the project website at www.bit.ly/parkaveproject. All work is weather permitting and subject to change.
