Westbound Speer Boulevard Lanes Closures October 16 -19

October 14, 2015 - Denver Metro/CDOT Region 1 - Paving & Striping of Speer Boulevard.

DENVER As part of the $3 million bridge rehabilitation project on Speer Boulevard and 23rd Avenue over I-25, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will require lane closures of westbound Speer Boulevard starting Friday, Oct. 16, at 9 p.m. until Monday, Oct. 19, at 5 a.m. for bridge joint removal and replacement, waterproofing, paving and striping. At least one lane of travel will remain open on westbound Speer Blvd., as well as the northbound I-25 Exit 212B to westbound Speer Blvd., throughout the weekend.

Traffic Impacts

To avoid these lane closures, westbound Speer Blvd. traffic can detour onto northbound I-25 to Exit 212C onto 20th Street. Motorists will travel west to southbound I-25 and use Exit 212B to rejoin Speer Blvd.

Eastbound Speer Boulevard will remain open but motorists should allow additional time for travel in the area. These lane closures will cause delays and alternate routes are advised.

Project Background
From June 2015 through November 2015, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Hamon Infrastructure will complete a $3 million bridge repair project on the two Speer Boulevard bridges and 23rd Avenue bridge over I-25. This project expands the bridge lifespan and provides better clearance under the arch bridge girders on southbound I-25.

Bridge rehabilitation includes joint elimination, waterproofing, frame leg encapsulation, door replacements, epoxy injections, minor widening of southbound I-25 with milling, resurfacing, restriping of these lanes, vertical clearance signage and striping on the girders.
