US 36 Closed for five Nights for Work on Sheridan Bridge

October 3, 2014 - Metro Denver Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Full US 36 closure Oct. 6 -10

WESTMINSTER – As part of the US 36 Express Lanes Project, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will close eastbound and westbound US 36 for a quarter of a mile on each side of the Sheridan Boulevard bridge, 10 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., for five nights, Oct. 6-10, to remove materials that temporarily supported the bridge structure.

“There are detour routes in place to direct traffic around the construction work each evening,” said CDOT Project Director Mark Gosselin. “We know it’s important to minimize the impact to the traveling public but also want to make sure that they remain safe.”

Traffic will be detoured at the US 36 off-ramps to Sheridan and routed immediately back onto eastbound and westbound US 36 via the on-ramps.

The US 36 Express Lanes Project is a multi-modal project that will build an express lane in each direction on US 36. 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. Phase 1 is currently under construction from Federal Boulevard to 88th Street in Louisville/Superior and will open to the public in 2015. Phase 2 from 88th Street to Table Mesa Drive in Broomfield recently began construction and will open in 2016.
