For other structures of the same name see Millennium Bridge (disambiguation)The Denver Millennium Bridge is the world's first cable-stayed bridge using post-tensioned structural construction. Its 200-foot (61m) white tapered steel mast rises above Denver's northwestern skyline, connected to the bridge deck and foundation anchors by steel cables. This unique footbridge crosses railroad tracks and the regional light rail system, climbing no higher than 25 feet (8m) above street level, thereby minimizing the height pedestrians must climb. Located near LoDo (Denver's lower downtown),in Riverfront Park, the Millennium Bridge connects the popular 16th Street Mall with the Commons Park in the Central Platte Valley District of the Union Station neighborhood. The bridge is the first of three pedestrian bridges between Downtown Denver and the Highland neighborhood.

  • As a bridge engineer, I wanted to see the Millennium Bridge when visiting Denver. It’s super convenient to get to, being only about a block from Union Station, and being at one end of the 16th Street....  more »
  • What a cool place to stop in Denver we had lunch right outside of the bridge we parked in the parking garage which was simple and now we’re walking over to the park very nice.  more »
  • I love this bridge. It takes a bit of work to get up the stairs but there is an elevator for those who need it. I recommend walking over it to the Platte river at night during a date. Very romantic!
  • Did not expect to see any of these sites in downtown Denver. We were amazed at how gorgeous everything was. We were able to capture some beautiful pictures and create long lasting memories
