Navigate North Denver


The City and County of Denver, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), utility companies, and private development  are implementing major construction activities expected to last through 2023. The need for effective communication with residents, businesses, and visitors about these projets and their impact on local and regional mobility is essential. 

The NAVIGATE - North Denver Program is a city effort to help pedestrians, drivers, and commercial vehicles travel along the Central 70 corridor, and throughout the communities of Globeville, Elyria, Swansea, Five Points, and Cole. This webpage is the initial phase for the program.


  • CLOSURE: southbound Brighton Boulevard will close for several days south of I-70. Please see the detour map. This closure will be placed Tuesday morning, March 12.
  • CLOSURE: Northbound Downing Street between 31st and 33rd avenues thru May 24. No access to Downing from 33rd Avenue is provided.
    - RTD bus routes 12 and 34: passengers that board on Downing Street at 31st Avenue and at Martin Luther King Blvd. are advised to board at Downing Station.
  • The bridge on 40th Avenue between Steele Street and Colorado Boulevard is now weight restricted for all vehicles. All trucks must use 46th Avenue to Steele Street or MLK Jr Boulevard if trucks exceed load limits.
