Paving Operations on I-70 to Cause Delays This Week

June 5, 2012 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 6 - DENVER – Rotomilling and paving operations have begun on I-70 between Sand Creek and Havana Street as the last phase of the Central Park Boulevard interchange construction project.

As a result, there will be various lane closures on eastbound and westbound I-70 from Tuesday, June 5th through Sunday, June 10th.

To complete the work, the following lane closures will be in place each night, including through this weekend, weather permitting:

Westbound I-70 between Peoria Street and Quebec Street: One lane of westbound I-70 will be closed starting at 9 p.m. with a second lane closing at 10 p.m. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. the following day.

Eastbound I-70 between Quebec Street and Havana Street: One lane of eastbound I-70 will be closed starting at 9 p.m. with a second lane closing at 10 p.m. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. the following day.

Throughout the week, including this weekend, major delays are expected on I-70 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.” Most fines for infractions that occur in the work zone will be doubled.

This work is part of an interchange improvement project that constructed a full interchange at I-70 and Central Park Boulevard, which is located between Havana Street and Quebec Street.  The interchange is complete and the paving operations will wrap up by the end of June 2012.

SEMA Construction, Inc. is the contractor of this $47.2 million project being funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) as well as the City and County of Denver voter-approved Better Denver Bonds. The City and County is providing primary construction oversight, with cooperation and additional oversight by the Colorado Department of Transportation.
