During the week of Aug. 19, 2019, construction activities will occur in the following areas:

  • Blake Street, between 24th Street and Broadway. Crews will continue natural gas line installation in this area into September 2019. Through traffic will continue to use Blake Street, but one lane of Blake Street will be closed. Street parking restrictions will occur in the construction work area, and sites will remain accessible. As work continues in this area, traffic control measures will shift to align with upcoming construction activities.

In the coming weeks, Xcel Energy will have a full closure of Blake Street, between 24th Street and Broadway. This full closure will take place so that Xcel Energy can complete natural gas line work and repave the roadway. Sites within this area will remain accessible, and we will coordinate with affected sites directly.

Xcel Energy will have traffic control in place during construction activities. Area commuters, pedestrians and cyclists should expect traffic flaggers, construction traffic and potential delays when navigating through the work areas. For your safety and the safety of the crews, please follow all posted detour signs and directions from construction personnel.

Project Overview
Xcel Energy is replacing existing natural gas lines in Denver for the Blake Street Natural Gas Project. This infrastructure replacement project will be constructed as part of our commitment to system revitalization and allow us to continue to provide the safe, reliable natural gas service our customers expect.

This year’s construction activities will take place through fall 2019 within Blake Street, between 24th and 29th streets. The 2020 construction activities will take place within Blake Street, between 29th and 36th streets. Please note that the project schedule is subject to change.

Xcel Energy thanks you for your patience during construction, and we apologize in advance for construction inconveniences.

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.

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.
