April 29, 2015 - Denver Metro/CDOT Region 1 - CDOT, in conjunction with the City of Broomfield and Jalisco International, Inc., began work this week on the final phase of the 120th Avenue Connection project.

BROOMFIELD COUNTY—The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), in conjunction with the City of Broomfield and Jalisco International, Inc., began work this week on the final phase of the 120th Avenue Connection project, which will connect State Highway 128 with 120th Avenue in Broomfield. The $30 million final phase will be completed in 2017.

For the next two months, motorists will experience lane closures Mondays through Fridays, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., as CDOT removes median barriers, shifts traffic and begins storm sewer work. During this time, speeds will be reduced to 30 mph with typically two lanes of traffic remaining open in each direction.

An open house for the final phase of this project will take place on Tuesday, May 19, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at 1 DesCombes Drive, Broomfield in the Ball Swan Conference Room.
