Getting Ready for the Convention or Blogger Bash? Here's Some More Information
It has come to our attention that a 5.5 mile segment of Interstate 25 from the interchange with I-70 to the interchange with 6th Avenue will be closed on August 28, when the Democratic National Convention meets at Invesco Field at Mile High. The road closure will start at 5:30 p.m. and end after Sen. Obama leaves the stadium. This article describes numerous other temporary reroutings in downtown Denver. Plan your travel throughout the week of the convention accordingly and be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get to where you want to go.
By the way, if you wish to attend the Rocky Mountain Blogger Bash 5000: The Donkeys Over Denver Edition, it's still not too late to RSVP. Since driving conditions are expected to be congested and confusing even to people who know the downtown area well, you may want to consider using public transportation. I plan on getting there via the light rail, which provides a carefree, comfortable ride.
If you have nothing better to do in Denver than to join the "Recreate 68" demonstration, check out this picture of your next residence, in an old city warehouse on the northeast side near 38th and Steele:
