Home » Guides » Colorado » State Highway 35 - Quebec Street

Colorado 35 is the 1.269 mile long state highway connecting Interstates 70 and 270 along Quebec Street in Denver. It was historically a longer route, serving former Stapleton International Airport. With the closure of the airport, Colorado 35 was truncated north to the south side ramps with I-70. The route ends to the north at East 53rd Place along the Denver and Commerce City line.
