We are excited to announce that the South Broadway Reconstruction project is 75 percent complete. Thanks to warmer weather, the team is on track to finish work early (weather permitting), with full use of roads as early as two months before the designated completion in late August. Work on Mississippi west of South Broadway should be complete before Memorial Day weekend. This will include a beautiful new elevated walkway.
Streetscaping and landscaping are expected to be done in June, including new streetscaping features with brick pavers and landscaping planters, as well as amenities such as new bike racks, new trash receptacles, and new benches to relax and take in the gorgeous Colorado views.
The project team is grateful to area businesses and residents for their continued patience during construction!
The South Broadway project has been divided into a series of six construction phases. The project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2017.
