Weekend Lane Closures on Alameda Avenue

Metro Denver Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - On Friday, May 13, at 9:00 p.m. the Colorado Department of Transportation will close one eastbound and one westbound lane on Alameda Avenue from S. Cherokee Street to I-25 for median work.

One lane will remain open in each direction. This closure will be in place until Monday, May 16, at 5 a.m. to accommodate the installation of new detour asphalt. Motorists should expect delays when driving through the area.  

A right lane closure will also take place on westbound Alameda Ave. from S. Cherokee St. to I-25 starting on Thursday, May 12, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. These lane closures are required to prepare for the weekend work on Alameda Ave.

Background

This $24 million project began in June 2014 and is scheduled to complete in Winter 2016/2017. Phases 1.2 and 1.3 were combined as a bridge replacement project that replaced the structures on I-25 over Santa Fe Drive. This project is now complete.

The current phase focuses primarily on Santa Fe, Alameda Avenue and southbound Kalamath and includes the new bridge over the South Platte River that now carries southbound I-25 off-ramp traffic onto southbound Santa Fe Drive. In addition, this project will widen Alameda Avenue at Santa Fe Drive/Kalamath.

This project will improve safety for the traveling public in this area and will help to reduce congestion and improve mobility in this heavily traveled section of the metro area.
