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.

Temple Sinai, 3509 South Glencoe Street
The community is invited to view the underpass designs at Hampden and Colorado Boulevard. This safety enhancement will alleviate the need for trail users to interface with traffic at the busy intersection. The open house will enable the community, trail, and park users to discuss the vision with the project team. Designers, City and County of Denver, Cherry Hills Village and Arapahoe County representatives will be on hand to discuss the project, answer any questions and gather community input.
