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.
