Update on Temporary Suspension of Enforcement Activities
Denver Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI) suspended some enforcement of parking restrictions in March due to the city’s response to COVID-19 and the Stay at Home order. Beginning June 1, DOTI will resume some — but not all — parking enforcement activities. Read the press release for more information
Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure is closing select streets to thru-traffic on a temporary basis to create more space for Denver residents to walk, bike and run while complying with physical distancing requirements. The additional room, currently not being used for car traffic, will allow people to enjoy the outdoors and feel more comfortable getting out for a walk, bike ride or fresh air during this time. By officially closing some areas to vehicle thru-traffic, the city hopes to provide a safer experience in alignment with its Vision Zero efforts to provide safer streets for all.
Roads closed to thru-traffic until further notice:
Areas being looked at first are neighborhoods with greater population densities where there’s a greater need for space and where adjacent parks are seeing significant use and reaching capacity. Areas of the city that don’t have immediate access to a park or trail are also being prioritized.
While the roads will be closed to thru-traffic, local access will still be allowed, which means people who live on the street, or need to access a destination on the stretch of roadway that is closed, will be allowed access. People in cars are urged to go very slowly and use extreme caution on these shared streets.
