Closure of Ramp From Westbound Arapahoe Road to Northbound Parker Road to be Extended One Day

January 19, 2011 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 6 - ARAPAHOE COUNTY – The ramp closure from westbound Arapahoe Road to northbound Parker Road will be extended one day as work continues on a storm sewer line at the intersection.

Instead of reopening at 11 p.m. tonight, the ramp will now open around 5 p.m. on Thursday, January 20th.  The right lane of westbound Arapahoe Road just east of Parker Road will also remain closed until 5 p.m. on Thursday.

“Since early Monday morning, we have been working to connect the new storm sewer line to the existing one that is located in the northeast corner of the intersection,” said CDOT Project Engineer Ed Bullard.  “Unfortunately, the work is taking a little longer than expected, which means we will have to extend the closures into Thursday in order to complete the work.”

During the closure, motorists on westbound Arapahoe Road needing access to northbound Parker Road will be detoured north on Lewiston Way, which connects to northbound Parker Road at a traffic signal.  Uniformed traffic control will continue to be onsite during peak hours to help move traffic through the area.

Major delays are expected on westbound Arapahoe Road and Lewiston Way and alternate routes are strongly advised. CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all construction signs and flaggers and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”  All lanes of westbound Arapahoe Road and the ramp from westbound Arapahoe Road to northbound Parker Road will reopen by 5 p.m. Thursday.

Hamon Constructors, Inc. is the contractor for this $32 million project, which should be complete by the end of November 2011.
