With this project, Department of Transportation and Infrastructure will create a new 12-acre recreational greenway with a multi-use trail between Franklin and Steele streets while reducing flood risk to nearby homes and businesses.
The historic Montclair basin is the largest in Denver with no natural drainage. Instead of floodwater flowing through the historic Montclair creek, which was built over in the early 1900s, water runs through neighborhood streets. This project will replace the city's aging infrastructure with green infrastructure that can better control stormwater and improve public safety and water quality. In addition to protecting neighborhoods from damaging floodwaters when storms hit, the greenway will provide other neighborhood benefits that will be enjoyed year-round. The greenway will stay mostly dry, and convey water only in storm events.
Construction began in Summer 2018. The Greenway will be completed in Fall of 2020.

Construction on the 39th Avenue Greenway project continues to advance as scheduled. As of the end of January, the project is 72% complete and should be substantially finished by summer 2020.
Over the past three months, the project progressed with excavation of the mile-long channel and the construction of four new bridges.
The York Street vehicular bridge is now open and traffic is flowing smoothly in both directions. The Williams Street vehicular bridge will be open this summer. The large sections of the pedestrian bridges, at High and Gilpin Street, have been installed and will open summer 2020.
