DENVER —Starting Monday, July 10, Denver Public Works will begin improving safety and multimodal travel along stretches of 19th and 20th Avenues east of the Central Business District. The project, which is expected to be ongoing through late fall 2017, will convert 19th and 20th Avenues between Broadway and Park Avenue West from one-way to two-way streets and integrate bikeways along both corridors.
The conversions will help increase circulation along these corridors and calm traffic in an area that is becoming increasingly residential. The project will also include converting Grant and Logan to two-way streets from 18th to 20th Avenues.
Construction will kick off Monday on the south side of 20th Avenue and will require the closure of Sherman Street at 20th Avenue until Monday, July 24. During the closure, traffic will be detoured onto Grant Street. Crews expect to transition to 19th Avenue in a few weeks.
Denver Public Works will try to keep traffic impacts to a minimum during the conversion. Normal working hours will be Monday through Friday from 7:00am to 5:00pm. Work will occur occasionally on the weekends. Business and resident access will also be maintained during construction. Detour signs will be posted. The public’s patience and cooperation is greatly appreciated. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
