These projects included the Belleview Avenue Overlay Project between University Boulevard and I-25 and the Leetsdale Drive Resurfacing Project between Mississippi Avenue and Colorado Boulevard. Each project resurfaced the pavement and improved driving conditions along both directions of an approximately 3-mile stretch of each corridor, leading to smoother pavement and enhanced safety for all modes of transportation.
Highlights from the Belleview Avenue Overlay Project include pavement resurfacing through mill and overlay along both directions of Belleview Avenue between University Blvd. and I-25; ADA-compliant concrete sidewalk and curb ramp improvements; and roadway re-striping.
Highlights from the Leetsdale Drive Resurfacing Project include pavement resurfacing along both directions of Leetsdale Drive between Mississippi Avenue and Colorado Blvd.; ADA-compliant concrete sidewalk and curb ramp improvements; roadway re-striping; and four raised medians were added between Monaco Parkway and Mississippi Avenue as a result of a safety study conducted by the City and County of Denver and CDOT.
Both projects began in spring of 2020 during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. With new safety guidelines, CDOT and Brannan Sand and Gravel worked together to effectively implement strict COVID-19 health and safety policies. These policies kept crews and the general public safe and healthy, as well as construction on track for timely completion. Both projects were completed on time and within budget due to the successful partnership between CDOT and Brannan Sand and Gravel.
