Cinco cruising, curfew to be enforced
The Denver Police Department Administration and the District One and Four Command staff have met with both public and private entities, planning for the Cinco de Mayo celebration this weekend. The City is anticipating heavy traffic on Federal Boulevard on May 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th.
Traffic will be allowed to cross Federal Boulevard freely until traffic congestion increases. Once this occurs east/west traffic across Federal Boulevard will be restricted to major intersections: Evans Ave, Jewell Ave, Florida Ave, Mississippi Ave, Alameda Ave, US-6, W. 10th Ave, and major intersections north of W. 20th Ave.
Access to side streets will be limited to neighborhood residents only once barricades are in place. Residents requiring access should contact the officer on post, if an officer is engaged in taking a police action; residents should proceed to the next staffed or open intersection.
Any violations which pose a safety risk will be strictly enforced. Police personnel will enforce traffic ordinances along the Federal Blvd. corridor including sound ordinance violations, both from stereos and excessive horn honking. The city juvenile curfew ordinance will be enforced. Celebrants that are less than 18 years of age will be subject to curfew enforcement beginning at midnight on Friday and Saturday and 11pm on Sunday and Thursday.
