US 6 to Remain Open on Sunday, Aug. 24, Northbound Federal Blvd. Nighttime Closure Only

August 24, 2014 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - DENVER – On Friday, Aug. 22, crews set girders on the Federal Boulevard over US 6 requiring a full overnight closure, as part of the the Colorado Department of Transportation's (CDOT) ongoing US 6 Bridges Design Build Project.

On Sunday, Aug. 24, US 6 will remain open overnight, with a full closure only occurring on northbound Federal Boulevard, between 5th and 6th Avenue. Detour route will be marked. Southbound Federal Boulevard in the same area will have one lane open to traffic.

PROJECT INFORMATION: The $98 million US 6 Bridges Design-Build Project will replace six obsolete bridges on US 6 between Knox Court and I-25, improve traffic movements in the I-25 and US 6 interchange and enhance driver safety by eliminating several traffic weave movements along US 6 between Federal Boulevard and I-25. Substantial project completion is planned for August 2015.
