April marked the start of two annual DOTI work programs that make city streets safer and cleaner for all modes of travel. The city’s 2020 paving program is aiming to improve more than 500 lane miles of local, collector and arterial streets with about $38M in funding. The program received an additional $8M this year from the Elevate Denver Bond Program passed by voters in 2017 and is in its 8th year of receiving funding from Measure 2A passed by voters in 2012, which provides an extra $4.5M toward the program annually. Residents can see where crews are working week to week on the city’s website at www.denvergov.org/denverpaving as well as maps of all the streets included in the 2020 program.
City paving crews are hitting the pavement at the same time as sweeper operators! The city’s annual street sweeping program runs April through November. People who are able to move their cars on street sweeping day are asked to do so to allow street sweepers to reach the curb line and more effectively remove dirt and debris to keep it out of our air and waterways. The city is not enforcing parking restrictions around street sweeping activities while the COVID-19 stay at home order is in effect.
