People seem to be pretty excited about the rebuilding of Brighton Boulevard, which is going to bring separated bike tracks, sidewalks and a bunch more stuff.

First, though: The construction.

Starting on Nov. 21, one of the northbound lanes will be closed in the construction zone and curbside parking will be prohibited between 31st Street and 3171 Brighton Boulevard. Businesses will stay open and accessible.

Pedestrians and bicyclists will be moved to the west/northerly side of the boulevard.

The work should take about 18 months.

Good luck. Here’s more information on the project. Sign up for updates from the builder here.
