48th Avenue Sidewalks

Denver's Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI) has completed construction on a project that included building a sidewalk and adjacent landscape areas along the south side of 48th Avenue between Brighton Boulevard and Claude Court to improve connections to the 48th and Brighton Light Rail Station.

During the summer and fall of 2021, construction crews installed sidewalks, trees and landscape; replaced pipe and inlets for the storm pipe; and repaved the street. These improvements were completed and ready for use in late 2021.

Project Improvements

This project improved the connections along 48th Avenue on the south side of the road between Brighton Boulevard and Claude Court and improved walkability to the 48th & Brighton Light Rail Station.

These improvements included:

  • Sidewalks and ADA ramps
  • Landscape plantings and trees within the amenity zone
  • New storm pipe and inlets
  • Repaving of the roadway
