The closure will be in place from 11 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. on Monday, October 3, 2011. Major delays are expected and alternate routes are strongly advised. Motorists are encouraged to take I-25 to I-70 as an alternate route to avoid the delays.

The bridge deck rehabilitation consists of rotomilling the existing asphalt, removing and replacing deteriorated concrete, paving, and striping. In all, the project will rehabilitate six bridge decks on I-270 including:

  • Eastbound and Westbound I-270 over Dahlia Street
  • Eastbound I-270 over the Burlington Ditch, which is between York Street State Highway 265 (Brighton Road)
  • Eastbound I-270 over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad
  • Eastbound I-270 over the South Platte River, which is near York Street
  • Eastbound I-270 over State Highway 265

To complete the work, there will be full closures of eastbound I-270 between York Street and Vasquez Boulevard for approximately four more weekends as well as single lane closures during the week nights. Night work will begin on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 on eastbound and westbound I-270 over Dahlia Street. Single lane closures are possible each night from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., Tuesday through Thursday. To complete the paving and waterproofing of the I-270 bridge decks over Dahlia Street, single lane closures are possible over the weekends. More lane closure information will be released as the project progresses.
