Three new stretches of road will close to cars for the most part and open to people looking to stretch out without having to get too close to others.

The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure announced Friday that it will close these segments early next week:

  • 30th Street from Welton Street to Larimer Street  in Curtis Park
  • 11th Avenue from Race Street to Colorado Boulevard (with Josephine and York Streets remaining open to thru-traffic across 11th Avenue) in Congress Park
  •  Franklin Street from 28th Avenue to 37th Avenue in Cole

The new stretches of people-friendly streets add about 2.5 miles to the city’s stock of similarly open streets around the city.
