Storm Sewer Work to Close Ramp from Westbound Arapahoe Road to Northbound Parker Road Next Week

January 14, 2011 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 6 - ARAPAHOE COUNTY – Starting at 5 a.m. on Monday, January 17th and continuing until 11 p.m. on Wednesday, January 19th, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will close the ramp from westbound Arapahoe Road to northbound Parker Road as well as the right lane of westbound Arapahoe Road just east of Parker Road. The closure is necessary for crews to complete storm sewer work at the intersection.

“We are connecting a new storm sewer line to the existing storm sewer line that is located in the northeast corner of the intersection,” said CDOT Project Engineer Ed Bullard.  “Since all of the work comes together at the ramp from Arapahoe Road to Parker Road, it is necessary to close the ramp until the work is complete.”

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 be onsite during peak hours on Tuesday and Wednesday (Monday is a holiday) 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 11 p.m. Wednesday.

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