The Projects

Each of these proposals are a responsible use of taxpayer dollars and each of these projects are a critical part of protecting and improving our infrastructure. These projects will allow Denver to address today’s needs while maintaining, repairing and improving our streets and facilities so we aren’t stuck with the higher cost of major repairs down the road.
