Construction workers taking up sought-after Denver parking spaces despite new rules
DENVER -- Despite off-site parking plans required by the city to reduce parking congestion near construction sites, the FOX31 Problem Solvers have learned Denver construction workers continue to use street parking while they work on major projects near the Capitol Hill neighborhood. “I understand the residents and their frustration because we take up a lot of their spots, but at the same time, we have a job to do and it’s kind of hard to park five blocks (away) and lug tools back and forth,” said Ernie Lopez, a construction worker who regularly parks near his work site at Speer Boulevard and Grant Street.
