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

November 4, 2014 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Ramp connecting eastbound C-470 to northbound I-25 impacted.

DENVER – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is performing restoration activities to two bridges at the C-470 and I-25 interchange, which will require one weekday night closure this week and one full weekend bridge closure this weekend.

In conjunction with this work, motorists should watch for the following traffic impacts as crews work to install new bearings and expansion joints on the bridge connecting eastbound C-470 to northbound I-25:

  • OVERNIGHT CLOSURE: Thursday, Nov. 6 from 9 p.m. to Friday, Nov. 7 at 5 a.m.
  • WEEKEND CLOSURE: Friday, Nov. 7 at 9 p.m. to Monday, Nov. 10 at 5 a.m.


  • Eastbound C-470 to northbound I-25 Detour: To detour around this closure, motorists on eastbound C-470 looking to transition to northbound I-25 will be directed to keep left and join 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. Once on westbound E-470, motorists will be directed to the northbound I-25 on-ramp.
    • 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.

“We fully understand the impacts our work has on individuals, families and businesses, which is why we’ve scheduled this work to take place during a single weeknight and full weekend closure instead of multiple nights and weekends of partial closures,” said CDOT Project Resident Engineer Dole Grebenik. “Last weekend’s work – closing the bridge connecting northbound I-25 to westbound C-470 – was a great success. We’re excited to continue an aggressive work schedule, which allows us to perform our work in a way that minimizes inconvenience to the traveling public and local businesses.”
