DENVER (KDVR) — With MLB All-Star Game festivities wrapping up, how long will it take for parking and roads to get back to normal downtown?
After settling for parking fees of more than $50 in the area near Coors Field, many fans are anxious to get back to paying less. But it’s not just baseball fans who are going downtown.
“We’re out here working. That’s half of what we’re being paid to be out here,” one downtown employee told the Problem Solvers.
The Problem Solvers found lots charging as little as $10, although the lots were several blocks away from All-Star Game events.
With many meters bagged or situated on closed streets, finding an available space has become a game of chance.

City officials told the Problem Solvers that roads around Coors Field should reopen after the final All-Star Game event.
