We are very frustrated and upset with the delays of the bridge reconstruction.
Here is an update from Denver Parks & Recreation (12/8/17):
The contractor has provided us with a construction schedule for the south bridge (E Cornell Ave). The bridge is currently being fabricated and, weather depending, the contractor will mobilize, prepare the site and remove the existing bridge in January 2018. The new bridge will be open to the public by March 31st, 2018. We recognize this bridge provides a key connection to the park and the Goldsmith Gulch Trail, and are replacing the existing 4’ wide bridge with a 12’ wide bridge that will better serve the park and regional trail.
Design of the East (E Amherst Ave) and West (S Newport St) bridges is underway, and construction is anticipated to begin in late summer/early fall 2018. Read the updated FAQ here.

To address years of flooding issues along Yale and S Glencoe, Public Works will be upgrading the existing storm infrastructure beginning in early 2018. The project will last 9.5 months, and traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Expect major traffic delays. Attend the meeting to learn more and ask questions of the project team.
