Centennial is located just 14 miles south of downtown Denver. Access to any part of the metro area is convenient as Centennial is bordered by major roadways, interstate highways and a toll road that circles the perimeter of the metro area.
In 2006, the City welcomed the first light rail station at Dry Creek, connecting residents and businesses to Centennial from downtown Denver. Today, the City is a partner in expanding the Light Rail Station to enhance access and better serve nearby employers and residents.
Denver International Airport is a mere 30 minutes away by car and routes via light rail. Located in the heart of our community, Centennial Airport is one of the busiest general aviation airports in the U.S., giving corporate travelers another convenient option.
