Rocky Mountain Showdown
  • Friday, August 30 (CU vs. CSU)

  • Sunday, December 1 (vs. Chargers)
  • Date TBD, December 21 or 22 (vs. Lions)
  • Sunday, December 29 (vs. Raiders)
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.comor 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 routes.

Update on I-25 Central Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study – CDOT is reviewing several options for the six-mile stretch of highway between Santa Fe Drive and 20th Street that runs right through the center of the city. According to CDOT, this area carries over a quarter of a million cars each day and has the highest average daily traffic in all of Colorado.  Some of the proposed options include:
• Multi-lane deck atop the current freeway
• Widening the interstate
• Toll lanes
• Lane realignment
• Additional light rail tracks
• Raised on and off ramps
• More feeder roads
• Charging drivers to use the highway during rush hours
While some may be too costly (multi-lane deck) and cause too much of a public outcry (charging drivers) CDOT feels more than one of these options may be implemented. JPUN has reached out to CDOT to see where they are in the process. CDOT states that they are currently running modeling scenarios on the proposed options.
JPUN will continue to work with CDOT to provide information to residents and present feedback. In the meantime, you can provide your input through the survey here – bit.ly/I-25CentralSurvey.

Jefferson Park Day Community Clean-up & Celebration – Many thanks to all who participated in JPUN’s 17th annual Neighborhood Clean Up. It was a great way to meet your neighbors while doing something tangible to help your neighborhood. Participants fueled up for a morning of labor with breakfast burritos from Araujo’s and got their java fix from 2914 Coffee. Thanks to Leslie Twarogowski and Federal BID who helped coordinate the food and drink. Denver Public Works and Denver Park and Rec provided shovels, rakes, trash grabbers, buckets, brooms, trash bags, gloves and vests. You just had to provide a willingness to help and so many people did. Participants even got a mimosa courtesy of Sartos at the Farm and Flea event. The Broncos Stadium District Management provided a gator and employees to help with our efforts.  Additionally, JPUN would like to thank Robert Caskey, Phil Arroyo and Mike O’Brien for lending their trucks for trash pickup and our Queen of Clean, Kym Foster, who once again chaired the event. The event was so popular that JPUN is considering a possible cleanup day in the Fall. If interested in helping, please email info@jpun.org

City Unveils Bike Lane Options for 23rd Ave – Denver Public Works (DPW) hosted an open house on design alternatives for the High Comfort Bike Lane along W. 23rd Ave. and Water St. from Federal to Speer.  The meeting, held on May 30th in Jefferson Park at the Denver Elks Lodge, showcased three options for the proposed high comfort bikeway and solicited the public’s input. A high comfort bikeway is a dedicated path for bicyclists to travel along on a street that provides a buffer of protection between them and passing traffc. There are a variety of methods for these physical barriers between the rider and cars, such as planters, curbs, parked cars, or vertical posts. DPW distributed door hangers along the length of the affected corridor to residents and businesses inviting them to attend the public meeting. For those who were unable to attend the latest meeting, DPW is collecting feedback regarding the project up until June 10th.  You can follow this link and specify the W. 23rd Ave project: https://www.denvergov.org/content/denvergov/en/bicycling-in-denver/infrastructure/protected-bike-lanes.html

I-25 Central Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study – There will be an I-25 Central PEL Public Meeting Thursday, June 6 from 5:30-7:30 at Riverside Church.  For more information on the PEL please visit the Project Site: https://www.codot.gov/projects/i-25-santa-fe-20th-street-pel

City Reviews Application for Jefferson Park’s First Historic District – Denver’s Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC) has received an application to create the city’s newest historic district along River Drive. The unique street is located southeast of the corner of W. 23rd Avenue and Clay Street and includes more than a dozen homes built in the 19th century. The area is the last intact section of a large subdivision from the 1880s called River Front Highlands that once covered a large swath of the current Jefferson Park neighborhood. Many of the homes on River Drive predate the park itself, which was built in 1899. A committee comprised of River Drive homeowners helped create the application which was submitted by Councilman Rafael Espinoza. The application is scheduled to be reviewed by the LPC on May 21. If the commission recommends approval, the application will then be reviewed by the Denver City Council which makes all final decisions on historic district designations. The process includes two scheduled opportunities for public comment at hearings in May and June.
