US 6 to close overnight at Federal Boulevard Sept. 13

September 11, 2014 - Metro Denver Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - DENVER – On Saturday, Sept. 13, crews will perform critical work to prepare for the installation of a new waterline on the Federal Boulevard bridge over US 6, as part of the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) ongoing US 6 Bridges Design Build Project.

This work will require a full overnight closure of US 6 under the Federal Boulevard bridge for safety purposes.

This closure will occur between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., with single-lane closures beginning at about 8 p.m­.

Federal Boulevard traffic will not be impacted by this work.


Westbound US 6 traffic will detour around this closure using the Federal off and on-ramps.

Eastbound US 6 traffic will detour at the Federal off-ramp, then use the 5th Avenue on-ramp to connect back with eastbound US 6 toward downtown Denver.

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.
