This project partners with the Globeville, Elyria-Swansea and Cole neighborhoods in Denver, Colorado to understand and address the disruption caused by the Central 70 highway reconstruction project and related neighborhood redevelopment.


Our National Science Funded project will equip and train community members to use personal environmental sensors to monitor air and noise pollution and design a set of smartphone apps where they can report their  their daily experiences related to construction and pollution 


Please consider getting involved [with link to get involved page]. We are currently recruiting neighborhood residents to participate in focus groups and to help us test our smartphone application.


The data reported through these technologies will allow us to:

  1.  understand how community members are affected by planned environmental disruptions,

  2.  address negative impacts of future planned disruptions, and

  3. connect policymakers to data generated by citizens within
    local communities.


The data will be available and shared back to community organizations and residents engaged as community scientists throughout the study.

Globeville is located in north Denver and is bounded by the South Platte River on the east and south, Inca Street on the west, and the City limits (mostly 52nd Avenue) on the north. Interstates 25 and 70 run through the neighborhood vertically and horizontally, respectively.
The southwestern corner of Elyria-Swansea is home to the Denver Coliseum.  Interstate 70 east–west through the neighborhood.  The neighborhood contains City of Denver's Elyria Park and Swansea Park.. A major railroad line traverses the neighborhood from southwest to northeast.
Cole is in the area commonly known as East Denver, or the "East Side." The shape of the neighborhood is like that of a square with the northwest corner cut off. The neighborhood is bordered on the west by Downing Street, on the northwest by Walnut Street, on the north by 40th Avenue, on the east by York Street, and on the south by Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
