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.


  • Upcoming Closure: the crossing of York Street and the Union Pacific Railroad will close for one day on Sunday, Feb. 3 between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m.
  • Closure: Walnut Street and 27th Street intersection is closed for four weeks. Detours are clearly marked, and Walnut Street is now in a two-way traffic configuration between 26th and 27th, and 27th and 28th.
  • Work on Columbine Street between 47th and 45th avenues (north and south of 46th Avenue) to install a waterline is expected to be completed by end of week of January 21. Access to school and businesses is being maintained and water shutoffs are not expected to occur from this work.  See the fact sheet.
  • 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.
