Broadway Terrace Rehabilitation Underway

(DENVER) - December 22, 2010 - Civic Center Park’s Broadway Terrace rehabilitation project is underway and scheduled to be complete in the spring of 2011. The project will include new and refurbished pedestrian walkways and pavement, seating areas, irrigation and landscape improvements including additional trees, improved pedestrian and street lighting, new drainage systems, RTD bus stop improvements, and improved curb, gutter and roadway treatments.

 

These improvements will guide the revitalization and transformation of Civic Center into a place of civic engagement. For visuals and more information on the project, please click here.

 

As part of Civic Center Park’s Broadway Terrace rehabilitation project, the following changes will be made to the immediate area to accommodate construction:

  • The right-turn-only lane at eastbound Colfax Avenue and southbound Broadway Street will be permanently removed to create a more pedestrian-friendly environment. The reclaimed space will be integrated as part of Civic Center Park’s Broadway Terrace.
  • Over the course of the project, sidewalks and accessible ramps in the project area will be closed intermittently, however detours for pedestrians will be available.
  • RTD bus shelters at the northwest corner of 14th/ Broadway have been removed, and the bus stop has been relocated to the southwest corner of the intersection adjacent to the Central Denver Public Library. RTD has also notified its users of the change.

 

Civic Center Park’s Broadway Terrace rehabilitation project is partially funded by the Better Denver Bond program with Spectrum General Contractors as the prime contractor.  Mundus Bishop Design is the landscape architect /urban designer.

 

The City & County of Denver’s Better Denver Bond Program works to preserve, renovate and create amenities that touch citizen’s lives – including roads, libraries, parks, recreation centers, child care sites, hospitals, city buildings, and cultural facilities. Approved by voters in 2007 and led by Mayor John Hickenlooper and civic leaders throughout the City, the bond program pumps millions of dollars into the economy, helps to preserve and create jobs and is making Denver a more attractive place to live, work, and invest in the future.
