Park Avenue Bridge and Roadway Improvements
The City and County of Denver is completing bridge and roadway rehabilitation work on the elevated portion of the Park Avenue Viaduct from the Platte River east to Wazee Street.
This critical improvement project incorporates bridge repairs and traffic signal replacements at Wazee and Delgany Streets, as well as new concrete curb ramps, signage and striping. The voter approved Elevate Denver Bond program is providing a portion of the funding for the bridge rehabilitation project.
The project is scheduled to be complete in Fall 2022.
In October 2021, the City and County of Denver and Hamilton Construction Company reached a major milestone. Crews have completed bridge and wall repairs and are now paving and waterproofing the roadway surface. This paving work will require intermittent and extended lane closures on both inbound and outbound Park Avenue through spring 2022. During extended lane closures, two lanes of traffic will be maintained in both directions. Pedestrian access will also be maintained throughout the project duration.
Motorists are encouraged to sign up for travel updates by contacting the public information team at firstname.lastname@example.org or (720) 772-7703, as the work schedule is subject to change.
