14th Avenue Bridge Over Cherry Creek

As part of the Elevate Denver Bond Program, which voters approved in 2017 to fund critical improvements to infrastructure, Denver’s Department of Transportation & Infrastructure (DOTI) replaced the 60-year-old bridge on West 14th Avenue between northbound and southbound Speer Boulevard to preserve and extend the life of the bridge.

DOTI also made safety improvements for those who walk and bike over the bridge, which included building wider sidewalks and a new, raised bicycle track over the 14th Avenue Bridge. In addition, crews upgraded the traffic signals and pedestrian ramps on West 14th Avenue at the intersections of Northbound and Southbound Speer Boulevard.

The bridge closed in October 2020 and reopened April 2021.
