  • Impacts for this week: There is a lane closure on Downing Street at 33rd, but two-way traffic is still being maintained. Curtis is closed from 32nd street to 33rd Street, and from 33rd Street to Downing Street. In addition, 33rd Street is closed from Curtis Street to Downing.
  • Weekend impact: Starting mid-day this Friday, the 25th—until Sunday evening, the 27th—Martin Luther King Blvd. will be closed at the west side of the MLK / Champa Street intersection for the installation of a new sanitary sewer line. This work will only take place over the weekend.
  • One/two-week look ahead: Starting within the next 1-2 weeks, the westbound, north side parking and travel lane of MLK will be closed— from Lafayette to Downing—for waterline work. One lane of travel will be maintained. The MLK / Marion intersection will not be affected, nor will the alley in between Marion and Downing.
  • Please note: There will be impacts to parking in front of your residence or business. We will work as quickly as we can to move the project along to minimize those impacts.

Walnut Street Corridor Improvements

Project Website

The Walnut Street Corridor Improvement project is headed by Denver Public Works and the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative (NDCC) and is one of several City projects underway that are building a better, greener, and more connected North Denver. Initial improvements will be installed in Summer of 2017. Following these enhancements, the city will begin a study of the entire roadway to determine long-term needs along this changing corridor.

Phase 2 — Beginning Fall 2017

The city will launch a full study of traffic conditions to determine the complete needs for Walnut Street along this stretch, including a possible two-way conversion. We will consider residential and commercial demand on the roadway as well as future development.

Open House #3 Wednesday, May 23

Open House #2 Wednesday, February 28

Open House Wednesday, November 29

Phase 1 — Winter 2016 to Summer 2017

Install “curb stops” to define parking and walking spaces from Broadway to 36th Street. These dividers are similar to the concrete blocks cars park against in parking lots. They are typically rectangular in shape and made of hard plastic or other material.
