DENVER (CBS4)– A new Department of Motor Vehicles office opened in southeast Denver on Tuesday. The hope is the new location will help cut down on long lines for drivers.
Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and other city leaders helped cut the ribbon for the new DMV office at Monaco and Evans Avenue.
It’s the first new DMV branch office on the side of town in 13 years. The original DMV office at that location was closed in 2003 because of budget cuts.
“Not only did we open up this DMV today back in southeast Denver, but we were able to restore our library hours back to full-time, our recreation centers back to full-time. So the return to a more robust, vibrant economy has been good to Denver,” said Hancock.
The Denver DMV offices serve more than 30,000 people each month.
