Habitat for Humanity

The Central 70 team volunteered for Habitat for Humanity on Feb. 9, 2018. Working on two separate homes in the Globeville/Swansea community, the team built a fence (pictured), painted trimmings of the homes and installed a gate. It was truly a pleasure to volunteer with a group that makes such a positive impact on the community every day.

Trick-or-Treating with Swansea Elementary

There were no tricks, just treats for Swansea elementary students this past Halloween. CDOT partnered with Denver Public Schools to organize a trick-or-treat off the street event at Swansea Elementary School where teachers and volunteers handed out candy, winter socks, nachos and even toothbrushes. Everything was a hit!

Prior to the trick-or-treating extravaganza, the Colorado Department of Transportation and Denver Public Schools dedicated the new east wing of the school to community leader, Lorraine Granado.

Chips & Chat at La Potranca Taqueria

For the past three months, Central 70 has been hosting a Chips & Chat for the community on the second Tuesday of each month. Join us anytime between 4 - 6 p.m. at La Potranca Taqueria to speak directly with project team members and ask questions about Central 70.

Swansea Carnival

On Saturday, May 20, the Central 70 Project team joined community partners to attend the annual Swansea Elementary School Carnival. The team conducted hourly drawings to give away 11 bikes to local children. Thank you to the Northeast Transportation Center (NETC) and Xcel Energy for your donation of bikes and helmets, and assistance with traffic control on the day of the event.

Representatives with Denver Environmental Health (DEH) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) were also there to showcase the Swansea Air Monitoring System (or SAM) and share air quality levels with the community. This system is currently monitoring the air quality and will continue doing so until a year after the Central 70 project construction is complete.
