Upcoming Nighttime Lane Closures on US 6 over Garrison Street

September 23, 2015 - Denver Metro/CDOT Region 1 - DENVER – As part of US 6 over Garrison Street bridge replacement project, on Saturday, Sept. 26, from 7:00 p.m. until 5:30 a.m., two westbound lanes and two eastbound lanes on US 6 will be closed over Garrison Street for the placement of new bridge girders.

One lane on US 6 will remain open in each direction, however, traffic will be paced during the girder set which will result in delays. Garrison Street will be closed from 9:00 p.m. until 5:30 a.m. Alternate routes are advised. 

The replacement of the existing and structurally deficient bridge along US 6 over Garrison Street started in January 2015 and will be completed in five phases. Three of the phases are for bridge demolition and reconstruction. In each phase, a section of the existing bridge will be demolished while a section of the new bridge is constructed. Three lanes in each direction on US 6 will be maintained at peak travel times throughout the project, but a series of shifts in the lanes will accompany each phase. Intermittent night work will result in lane closures.

The construction project will provide greater vertical sight distance on US 6, improve drainage, widen lanes on both US6 and Garrison Street and improve sidewalks, signals, bike lanes, aesthetics and lighting under the bridge.

The City of Lakewood has been an important partner in the planning and development of this project, which is scheduled for completion in late 2015.

CDOT and the contractor team, led by Hamon Infrastructure, would like to remind motorists to slow down in the construction area. Fines will be doubled within the work zone.
