August 28, 2014 - Metro Denver Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - DENVER –On Thursday, Aug. 28, crews will close westbound US 6 just east of I-25 overnight for necessary roadway maintenance, including paving and re-striping operations. This closure will occur between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.

In conjunction with this work, the northbound I-25 off-ramp to westbound US 6 will close overnight as well. The southbound I-25 off-ramp to westbound US 6 will remain open.


I-25 traffic should take Alameda Avenue or Colfax Avenue west to Federal Boulevard, then use the Federal Boulevard on-ramp to access westbound US 6.

Downtown Denver traffic will use the westbound US 6 on-ramp to northbound I-25, I-25 north to Colfax Avenue, Colfax Avenue west to Federal Boulevard, and the Federal Boulevard on-ramp to access westbound US 6.
