Upcoming Road Closures: The following closures will occur from February 21 to Februrary 27 on 19th Ave. and I-70. The closures will take place at night, and will facilitate the expansion of E-470 bridges over 19th Ave. and I-70.
Substructure work is continuing on E-470 bridges over I-70 and 19th Street. Crews are working on the foundations of these bridges, installing abutments and piers to support the new lanes being added. Some delays should be anticipated as flaggers guide traffic through lane restrictions, with one lane of traffic remaining open at all times.
Work is also continuing on the Murphy Creek and Colfax bridges. Part of the Murphy Creek bridge foundation was completed this month, and work is underway on the expanded deck of the Colfax Bridge. Crews have finished pouring the southbound asphalt deck on the Coal Creek Bridge and are looking to pour the northbound deck this month. The continued work on this bridge may cause delays as traffic is routed through single lane closures.
Earthwork continues in the areas of the southbound E-470 off-ramp to I-70 to allow for upcoming foundation work in the month ahead. Expect truck traffic entering along the ramp and use caution when driving in the work zones. Next month, safety barriers will be erected to allow crews to perform bridge work and traffic will be shifted to one side of the ramp.
Single Lane Closures from I-70 on-ramp to E. Smith Road
To facilitate the construction taking place on the various E-470 bridges between the I-70 on-ramp and E. Smith Road, there will be daily single lane closures in both directions of the roadway. These closures will be taking place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day to provide crews access to a safe work zone. Those travelling through this area may experience minor delays.
