DISABLED PARKING
There are a limited number of ADA (handicapped) parking spaces available on the State Capital grounds due to the renovation of the dome.  These spaces are first-come-first-served and located just outside the Capitol building off the circle drive near its south side basement entrance:

  • Enter the drive off of 14th and Sherman.
  • Drive up to the barrier with the automatic arm and call box.
  • Tell the guard you are going to the ADA (disabled) parking and the gate/arm will be opened to let you in.
  • Park in an open ADA space at the south side (14th Ave.) of the building — access the building through this ADA entrance.

There are also a couple of ADA spaces on Sherman between 14th and 13th.

Of course, you may park in any metered space.  [Click here for street map.]  Meters that are bagged are reserved and should not be used.  Parking at a bagged space will result in ticket and/or towing.  With a valid disability placard or plate, Denver’s Disability Parking Ordinance [Click here] allows you to “park at Denver City meters for up to four (4) hours without paying . . . when parking is allowed.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
The Capitol is located one block southeast of Civic Center Station, which can be accessed by Light Rail from the 16th Street Mall.  Check with RTD (www.rtd-denver.com) for specific schedules.
