This project will provide a continuous multi-use trail bypassing the busy intersection of Hampden Avenue and Colorado Boulevard by building two underpasses beneath these two major arterials. This will improve the connection of the High Line Canal Trail in Denver and neighboring areas, creating a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists.
