33rd Street Outfall

City and County of Denver Storm Sewer Improvement Project
Estimated Project Duration: Winter 2016–Spring 2018
Improvements begin in the Union Pacific Railroad yard at 33rd St proceeding east crossing the railroad to Blake St via 33rd and then proceeding south in Blake St to 31st. More Information: Download Public Notification of Construction PDF; Detailed project information is always available online at:

33rd Street Outfall / Phase 2 + 3 — 04/10/18

  • Phases 2 and 3 of the 33rd Street Outfall project are mostly complete with just a couple of items to finish up. Crews on the west side of the tracks continue to wrap up that work, and there will be a final asphalt overlay of 33rd Street in May. This yet-to-be-scheduled paving will only take a day to complete. Watch for no parking signs in advance of that work.
  • Phase 4 of this project—from Curtis to Lafayette—is scheduled to begin in August. During the summer we will be in touch with lots of information about that upcoming phase including a walking video tour of the construction route, what to expect along the route, and the date of the community meeting. The weekly updates will then start up again.
  • On behalf of everyone on our 33rd Street Outfall team—from the contractors and crews, to all the behind the scenes folks—we thank you for your cooperation and patience during this construction. We will be in touch again soon!
  • As always, please contact us if you have any questions or concerns: David Shaw, Project Manager 720-271-8125

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 #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.
