Work Begins on I-76 at 136 Ave. For Concrete Pavement Repairs

October 29, 2014 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - ADAMS COUNTY – Starting Thursday, Oct. 30, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will perform concrete pavement repairs on I-76 between Buckley Road and 136th Avenue in Adams County.

Initially this project will require daytime lane closures as crews begin preparation work.

On Thursday, Oct. 30 and Friday, Oct. 31 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., crews will close the left lane and left shoulder of eastbound and westbound I-76 at 136th Avenue for center median work. This $2 million project, contracted to Interstate Highway Construction (IHC), will be complete in Feburary 2015.

In the coming weeks, eastbound and westbound I-76 will be reduced to a single lane in each direction, with speeds reduced to 55 mph. While westbound I-76 is under construction, the westbound I-76 on-ramp from 136th Avenue will be closed and traffic will detour along the frontage road from 136th Avenue to 144th Avenue/I-76 interchange to access westbound I-76. While eastbound I-76 is under construction, access to the 136th Avenue off-ramp from eastbound I-76 will be closed and traffic will detour to 144th Avenue and use the frontage road to return to 136th Avenue.

“We want to thank motorists in advance for their patience as we perform this important work to maintain our highway system,” said Neil Lacey, CDOT project Resident Engineer. “We look forward to making improvements in this area before the end of the year.”

CDOT and IHC remind motorists to drive slow through the cone zone!
