Brighton Boulevard Is Finally Open (or Close Enough)

Brighton Boulevard Is Finally Open (or Close Enough)

It's been a long eighteen months for the RiNo business owners who've endured endless reconstruction along Brighton Boulevard, and although the work isn't completely done, Mayor Michael Hancock and other dignitaries (as well as two protesters opposing the I-70 project) marked the completion of the "first phase" of the project on Thursday, June 21. Over the summer, some 400 trees, lighting and colorful benches will be added; the sidewalks and bike lanes between 29th and 40th streets will also be finished. But for now, Brighton is open for business again.
