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.


  • Starting on Monday, Dec. 3 through Jan. 15, 2019, a portion of Columbine Street will close north of Steavenson Place and south of 46th Avenue for work on a waterline. Access to school and businesses will be maintained and water shutoffs are not expected to occur from this work. See the fact sheet.
  • Starting on Monday, Dec. 3 through Monday, Dec. 10, traffic on York Street between 38th and 40th Avenue will be reduced to one lane in both directions, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Traffic delays are expected, especially during commute hours. Please use alternate routes or plan for additional time.
  • 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.
