During construction, we ask the public to travel with caution, observe all detours and directions provided by reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes whenever possible.
Sidewalks will remain open and access to driveways will be maintained for the duration of the project. Thanks for your patience! A smooth street is on the way!
N Denver Ave between N Lombard Street and N. Watts Street is getting repaved thanks to Fixing Our Streets!
When PBOT repaves a roadway, we often leverage the opportunity to improve safety at the same time and review the lane configuration, bike facilities, and crossings. We initially proposed repaving N Denver Avenue this summer, including protected bike lanes, transit stops and crossing medians.
Our project team has determined that the project can be delivered with standard bike lanes and curb-tight parking while leaving open the potential to switch to parking-protected bike lanes as part of a future project. In the interest of moving forward with the needed paving maintenance in 2019, this is what we will do.
Construction Timeline: Sept. 5 - Nov. 9, 2019 (weather permitting)
