Directions, maps, and public transportation:[2]

Take I-25 North to Exit 229 (Lafayette/Brighton), go up the ramp. Turn left at the stop light, cross over the interstate and turn right at the first opportunity (Huron Street, approximately 1/8 mile from the interstate). We are the blue and white building to the northwest. The road narrows right after you cross I-25, and then there is a Right Turn only lane; this is Huron St. and where you need to turn. There is no sign that points to our facility. If you go past Children's Hospital, you have gone too far.

  • Public Transportation: Call Regional Transportation District, 303-299-6000, for route and schedule.
