US 36 Closed Tonight Under Wadsworth Parkway Bridge for Deck Pour

May 31, 2013 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 6 - BROOMFIELD – Tonight, May 31, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will pour the remaining half of the concrete deck on the new Wadsworth Parkway bridge as part of the US 36 Express Lanes Project.

For the safety of the traveling public, the work will require a full closure of eastbound and westbound US 36 at Wadsworth Parkway starting at 10 p.m.tonight and continuing until 7 a.m. tomorrow. Traffic will be detoured via the on and off-ramps at Wadsworth Parkway. While the detour route is minimal, delays are still expected. CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all construction signs and flaggers and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”

The Wadsworth Parkway bridge will be complete by November 2013. It is one of five bridges being replaced as part of the US 36 Express Lanes Project. Three more bridges will be widened to accommodate the widening of US 36.

The $312 million multi-modal project will build an express lane in each direction on US 36 from Federal Boulevard to 88th Street in Louisville/Superior. The lanes will accommodate High Occupancy Vehicles (HOV), Bus Rapid Transit and tolled Single Occupancy Vehicles. In addition, the project will replace several bridges, build a commuter bikeway, add Bus Rapid Transit improvements, and install Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) for tolling, transit, and traveler information, and incident management.

Ames/Granite Joint Venture team is the design-build contractor for the project, which began last summer and will open to the public in January 2015.
