Parking Restrictions – Friday, August 31st!

DENVER ­— This Friday, the Broncos Stadium at Mile High will host the Rocky Mountain Showdown. As excitement builds for the game, Denver Public Works is reminding fans to pay attention to posted parking restrictions around the stadium and surrounding neighborhoods. Denver’s Right of Way Enforcement agents will enforce posted parking regulations in the area during the following games:

Rocky Mountain Showdown

  • Friday, August 31

Broncos Regular Season

  • Sunday, September 9
  • Sunday, September 16
  • Monday, October 1
  • Sunday, October 14
  • Sunday, November 4
  • Sunday, November 25
  • Saturday, December 15
  • Sunday, December 30

On Street Parking
Posted signs in the stadium area restrict parking to vehicles with the correct residential parking permit posted in the window from 6:00pm to 9:00pm on weekdays and from 12:00pm to 9:00pm on weekends. Those vehicles that park without appropriate permits will be cited and towed to a temporary impound lot in Denver at 2000 W. 3rd Avenue.

For those who are eligible for a Residential Parking Permit (RPP), now is a great time to make sure their permits are current. Residents are likely eligible for RPP if they have a sign with posted restrictions on their street. To find out more, call 311 or visit denvergov.org/rpp.
Stadium Parking
There will be handicap placard enforcement for all handicap parking lots on-site at the stadium. Anyone who would like to park in these lots will be asked to show proof of their handicap placard registration before they will be allowed to enter.

Off-Street Parking (parking lots)
Fans should also be cautious when utilizing a parking lot in the area.

Those who are not parking in one of the parking lots on stadium property should choose only locations that display a special event parking sign issued by the City & County of Denver, or are existing approved parking lots clearly managed by reputable companies.

The signs display the City & County of Denver seal and include the address of the parking location. These signs were issued because of the proliferation of illegal parking lots taking drivers’ money, only to have the drivers return to their vehicles to find it ticketed and/or towed. When parking in a lot with the City & County of Denver sign posted, fans can be assured they will be parked legally and are not in danger of tickets, tows, or being “parked in” (blocked or trapped in a space by other vehicles).

Alternative Transportation 
Denver Public Works encourages fans to take the light rail or bus to the stadium. Please check with RTD on schedules prior to planning your trip. Go to rtd-denver.com or call the RTD Telephone Information Center at 303-299-6000.

The stadium is also conveniently located adjacent to Denver bike paths, and it is equipped with over three hundred individual bike racks. Fans can check out denvergov.org/bikemap to plan their route or pick up a free copy of the Denver Bike Map at a local recreation center or Denver City Council office.
