Overnight Lane, Ramp Closures Needed on U.S. 6 this Weekend

December 4, 2015 - Denver Metro/CDOT Region 1 - DENVER – This weekend, construction crews will be replacing concrete roadway panels and barriers in several locations along U.S. 6 between Knox Court and Interstate 25, and along Federal Boulevard.

This work will require various overnight ramp and lane closures on Friday, Dec. 4, and Saturday, Dec. 5.

On Friday night, the following ramp and lane closures will be in effect:

  • The northbound I-25 off-ramp to both eastbound and westbound U.S. 6 will be closed from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. Northbound drivers should exit at either Alameda or Colfax avenues.
  • The westbound U.S. 6 off-ramp to Federal Boulevard will be closed from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. Drivers should continue west to Sheridan Boulevard and go north to Colfax to reach Federal.
  • The eastbound U.S. 6 off-ramp to both northbound and southbound I-25 will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Eastbound U.S. 6 drivers will be directed to Osage to enter westbound U.S. 6 to reach I-25. During this time, access to I-25 from Federal Boulevard also will be closed.
  • The Lowell on-ramp to eastbound U.S. 6 will be closed from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. Drivers should use Federal Boulevard to access eastbound U.S. 6.
  • There will be double right lane closures along eastbound U.S. 6 from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and a single right lane closure along westbound U.S. 6 from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m.
  • There will be double right lane closures in both directions of Federal Boulevard between 5th and 7th avenues from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m.

On Saturday night, the following ramp and lane closures will be in effect:

  • The southbound I-25 off-ramp to westbound U.S. 6 will be closed from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Drivers will be directed to use Colfax or Alameda avenues.
  • There will be single left lane closures in both directions of U.S. 6 from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m.
  • There will be double left lane closures in both directions of Federal Boulevard between 5th and 7th avenues from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m.

This work is part of the $98 million U.S. 6 Bridges Design-Build Project to replace six obsolete bridges on Highway 6 between Knox Court and I-25 and enhance driver safety by eliminating several traffic weave movements along U.S. 6 between Federal Boulevard and I-25. While construction on this project is substantially complete, there are some final restoration activities and punch-list items to address.
