With this project, Denver Public Works will create a new 12-acre recreational greenway with a multi-use trail between Franklin and Steele streets while reducing flood risk to nearby homes and businesses.
The historic Montclair basin is the largest in Denver with no natural drainage. Instead of floodwater flowing through the historic Montclair creek, which was built over in the early 1900s, water runs through neighborhood streets. This project will replace the city's aging infrastructure with green infrastructure that can better control stormwater and improve public safety and water quality. In addition to protecting neighborhoods from damaging floodwaters when storms hit, the greenway will provide other neighborhood benefits that will be enjoyed year-round. The greenway will stay mostly dry, and convey water only in storm events.
Construction began in Summer 2018. The Greenway will be operational in 2020.
Water Service Interruption Thursday, October 17
Water service will be temporarily shut down for water line improvements on Thursday, October 17 for properties located on Adams Street between 38th and 40th Avenue. This shutdown is scheduled to occur between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. SEMA is coordinating with Denver Water to minimize the service interruption.
Upcoming Openings: End of October 2019
Access to businesses and properties will be maintained during construction. Detour routes will be posted to guide motorists and pedestrians around the closures. Schedules are weather dependent and may change without notice.
As of mid-September, the project is approximately 60% complete.
Throughout the next three months, the project will advance down the channel with final construction of the Franklin Outfall and will complete excavation of the greenway, which makes way for the installation of multiple walls along the channel.
In addition, 40th Avenue from Columbine to Clayton will reopen and construction will begin on the Williams Street vehicular bridge, the High and Gilpin Street pedestrian bridges, and residential fencing along properties that line the greenway will commence.
On Thursday, August 15, 2019, 40th Avenue from Madison to Monroe was reopened to traffic, including motorists and pedestrians.
Since the closure in April 2019, the following work was completed:
Construction on the 39th Avenue Greenway project continues to progress as scheduled. As of mid-April, the project is 30% complete. Milestones reached include:

The following project milestones have been completed this quarter:
