Phase 1 of the Peña Widening Project is now complete.
The Peña Boulevard Phase 1 Project was approved by City Council in June 2019. This work included the reconstruction of Peña Boulevard from Jackson Gap Street and reconstruction of the Jackson Gap Street and Interchange from 74th Ave. to 78th Ave. As a result of reduced project funding due to the COVID-19 financial impact to DEN, only a portion of the overall work was completed in July 2021.
DEN passenger traffic and vehicular traffic volumes have returned to pre-COVID/2019 volumes. DEN has determined there is a need to complete the remainder of the Phase 1 Project scope to address pavement conditions and plan for future planned DEN growth.
