Upcoming Lane Closures
Motorists can expect single lane closures on northbound and southbound E-470 to complete the barrier installation which is necessary to create a safe work zone while protecting the traveling public from construction activities.
Daytime single lane closures: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Nighttime single lane closures: Monday-Friday, 7 p.m. - 6 a.m.
Please be advised the speed limit has been reduced in the construction zone. This speed reduction is being monitored and enforced by the Colorado State Patrol.
Scrapers continue earthwork activities on southbound E-470 between Jewell and SH 30. Excavation will prepare the roadway for southbound asphalt paving starting near Jewell Avenue the week of September 23. To date, approximately 150,000 cubic yards of dirt have been moved on the project. Watch for trucks entering and exiting the construction work zone.
Bridge Work Begins
A total of 14 bridges will be widened as part of the project. With the addition of a lane in each direction the existing bridges must be expanded to accommodate the new lanes. Pile driving, the deep foundation work, kicked off on the Coal Creek bridge just south of 6th Parkway this week. Following the pile driving, construction of the bridge approach slabs will begin. Watch for large equipment and reduced speeds in this area.
Other Construction Activities
• Temporary lighting is being installed behind the barrier to replace the existing light structures duringconstruction at multiple interchange ramps. Upon completion permanent lighting will be replaced.
• Guard rail removal continues behind the project barriers.
