Broadway: Park Avenue to Welton Street Rehabilitation and Concrete Resurfacing
City and County of Denver

Project Description: 

As part of the Better Denver Bond Program approved by voters in 2007, this $3.7 million project included the reconstruction of Broadway from the north edge of the light rail tracks at Welton St. to Park Avenue. The project included the removal of existing asphalt pavement and reconstruction of 2,900 linear feet of roadway, curb and gutter and sidewalks in longer lasting concrete. Project elements included intersection enhancements, new traffic signals installed at 20th and California, Stout and Champa Streets, drainage improvements and curb and gutter upgrades, sidewalk and ADA pedestrian ramp improvements, new lighting, signage and pavement marking. During construction, this major arterial roadway was restricted to accommodate construction, maintain flow of traffic during a.m. and p.m. peak hour traffic, coordination with evening and weekend events, and maintain access to businesses through the duration of the project. As a consultant to Parsons and Lawson Construction, Regnier & Associates provided accurate and timely Public Information Management services and maintained constant contact with the traveling public and businesses adjacent to the 1.5‐mile stretch of roadway through downtown Denver.

Additional services included weekly lane closure reports, traffic advisories, press releases, management of an informational website, monthly newsletters, daily monitoring of the project information line, comment tracking, database management, and liaison between contractors, engineering consultants, traffic control personnel, and the City of Denver Public Information Office. Regnier also provided close coordination with traffic control personnel and 6‐8 visually impaired IRS employees working at the office building located at 1999 Broadway. Daily personal walking escorts were provided during construction between the light rail station located at Welton St., across the busy intersection of Welton St. & 19th Street and Broadway to their building.
