Traffic impacts on Broadway at California St. as rehabilitation work progresses | Transportation
DENVER, CO — Thursday, July 7, 2011 — As part of the Better Denver Bond Program, Denver Public Works and hired contractor Parsons and Lawson Construction continue to make improvements on the Broadway Rehabilitation Project. Currently, construction is taking place on Broadway between Welton Street and Park Avenue. Due to this work, the following closure will take place beginning Friday, July 8, 2011:
- Major road work will take place at the intersection of Broadway and California Street. California will be closed between 19th and 21st Streets beginning Friday morning at 8 A.M. Local access will be allowed between 19th and 21st Streets, via California Street. California is expected to reopen by 3 P.M. on Monday, July 11.
The Broadway Reconstruction Project will rehabilitate 4,900 linear feet of curb, gutter and sidewalk, and replace 24,000 square yards of existing asphalt road with concrete pavement. The traffic signals on Broadway at the intersections of California, Stout and Champa Streets will also be replaced as part of this project. Additional upgrades include bulb-out crosswalks, installation of new crosswalk buttons and signs, and improvements to the curb ramps.
The project is anticipated to conclude in October of this year. All construction is weather dependent and the public’s patience during construction is greatly appreciated.
