HistoryOriginally, this was the tramway roadbed in 1904. Earth was dug out beneath Grandview, Wadsworth, and the Colorado Central Railroad tracks to make way for the Denver & Northwestern Railroad and the Yellow Cars to travel north to the coal fields in Leyden. When the Denver and Intermountain Railway was discontinued in 1950, the "cut" was filled in, and this portion of Wadsworth Boulevard became known as Wadsworth By-pass.
