Upcoming weekend closure for bridge work on C-470 at I-25

October 29, 2014 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1- Ramp connecting northbound I-25 to westbound C-470 impacted.

DENVER – Crews performing maintenance activities at the C-470 and I-25 interchange will require a full weekend closure this upcoming weekend. In conjunction with this work, motorists should watch for the following traffic impacts:

  • Friday, Oct. 31 at 9 p.m. to Monday, Nov. 3 at 5 a.m.: Crews will close the bridge connecting northbound I-25 to westbound C-470 to perform expansion joint repairs.

TRAVEL IMPACTS:

  • Northbound I-25 to westbound C-470 Detour: To detour around this closure, northbound I-25 motorists looking to transition to westbound C-470 will be directed to stay on eastbound E-470, exiting at Peoria St. Motorists will take a left at the bottom of the ramp (joining northbound Peoria St.) and then another left to join westbound E-470 traffic via the highway on-ramp. They will keep left to make the transition from westbound E-470 to westbound C-470.
    • E-470 tolls at the Peoria St. interchange (only) will be waived while the detours are in effect. All other E-470 tolls will remain in effect.

“By scheduling this work to take place during a single weekend closure, instead of several weeks of nightly lane closures, we’ve reduced the total time needed for the Contractor to perform this work and will minimize the inconvenience to the traveling public,” said CDOT Resident Engineer Dole Grebenik. “The full closure creates a much safer work environment for the Contractor’s crews and CDOT staff as well.”
