Yale Roadway Improvements at Holly — Status: Planning, Design and Pre-Construction
E. Yale Avenue is a critical east-west arterial in southeast Denver, crossing through and serving City and County of Denver (CCD) and Arapahoe County residents. Yale Avenue near the E. Yale Avenue/S. Holly Street intersection experiences significant congestion and the traffic signal infrastructure is dated. The High Line Canal Trail is a major regional trail facility used for both recreation and commuting that crosses Yale Avenue just west of the E. Yale Avenue/S. Holly Street intersection without a safe connection. Improvements are needed to provide safe and convenient travel for all types of travelers.

Mississippi/Parker — Status: Construction
Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, or DOTI, is working on a project that will create a safer, more convenient connection for people who walk and ride bikes on the High Line Canal Trail. Over the next several months, crews will install an underpass beneath Parker Road to continuously connect the High Line Canal Trail and allow people walking and riding bikes to have a safer crossing at Mississippi Avenue. Currently, trail users cross at street level amid heavy vehicle traffic. The underpass is anticipated to be ready for use in Fall 2021.
Colorado/Hampden — Status: Completed
This project will provide a continuous multi-use trail bypassing the busy intersection of Hampden Avenue and Colorado Boulevard by building two underpasses beneath these two major arterials. Final designs were completed in 2019. Construction began in May 2020 and two underpasses at Colorado and Hampden opened to the public in June 2021.
