Colfax Avenue Improvements – Denver CO

Description

In 1937 the Works Progress Administration (WPA) “completely paved and modernized” Denver’s Colfax Avenue, “and built a new western route which took it over the hill and across ranch land to the entrance of Mt. Vernon Canyon, its present route. Around this time Colfax was designated U.S. Highway 40.”
