One driver is dead after crashing near West 52nd St. and Sheridan Boulevard, Denver Police said Monday morning. DPD shut down Sheridan Boulevard, south of 52nd St. for hours, but the roadway has since reopened.
The medical examiner has not yet identified the victim. The DPD investigation is ongoing.
Clear Creek Drive and Harlan Street is a good alternate route for morning commuters, according to Denver7 Traffic Expert Jayson Luber. You could also use Tennyson Street on the other side of Willis Case Golf Course.

A few hours later, there was also a crash on Southbound Interstate-25 at the 88th Ave. bridge, 84th Ave, blocking a lane of traffic. Luber estimates the drive time is 30 minutes on Southbound I-25. Before jumping on the highway, Luber recommends using some of the side roads to get to 84th Ave.
