Future Closure Notifications
The majority of work will be limited to the site outside of the right-of-way, however, there will be occasional lane or sidewalk closures necessary for utility connections and right-of-way work. Notifications of such closures will be posted on as well as Facebook and Twitter.

Denver Parks & Recreation is committed to limiting inconveniences to the public as much as possible. The community’s cooperation with project crews during this process is greatly appreciated– Please share this information with your neighbors!
