Temporary Intersection Closures to Begin on Wadsworth Parkway for Paving

August 11, 2011 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 6 - Beginning Friday, August 12th, at 8:00 p.m. and continuing 24 hours a day through Tuesday, August 16th, at 5:00 a.m., the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will temporarily close the intersections of Wadsworth and 90th, 92nd, Independence, and 100th for concrete paving operations.

Each intersection will be rotomilled and then paved with new concrete.  In order to expedite progress, it may be necessary to work on up to two intersections simultaneously with minor overlapping work for short durations.  Crews will finish one intersection and then move to another but may begin work while the concrete is curing on the finished intersection so no more than two intersections may be closed at any given time.  It is expected that each intersection will take approximately 24 hours to complete.  Because it takes time for the concrete to cure, there may be times when work isn’t visibly going on but the intersection will remain closed.

Signs will direct motorists to detour routes.  Major delays are possible and alternate routes are strongly advised.

During the closures, there will be police officers directing traffic in active intersections and all businesses will remain open and access maintained.

Castle Rock Construction Company is the contractor for this $4.7 million project that will resurface approximately two miles of Wadsworth Parkway in concrete in order to extend the life of the pavement.  The project is scheduled to be complete by the end of December 2011.
