Overnight Closures: On-Ramp from WB Arapahoe Road to SB I-25 Tonight, Thursday and Friday

June 1, 2016 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Greenwood Village – The Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) will close the on-ramp from westbound Arapahoe Road to southbound Interstate 25 tonight, tomorrow, Thursday, June 2, and Friday, June 3 from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Motorists will be detoured via Yosemite Street to Dry Creek Road. Also, a right lane restriction will be needed on southbound I-25 from Orchard Road to Dry Creek Road beginning at 8 tonight and continuing until midnight.  These closures are required to lengthen the acceleration distance for drivers entering southbound I-25 from westbound Arapahoe Road.  Work includes restriping and additional utility work.

The project team reminds motorists to allow extra time for your commute, adhere to speed reductions on I-25 and Arapahoe Road and avoid distractions. Alternate routes are advised. Watch for weekly construction update emails with the most up-to-date information regarding traffic impacts.

Project Information: This $66 million Responsible Acceleration of Maintenance (RAMP) Project includes building an additional lane along westbound Arapahoe Road from Yosemite Street to Greenwood Plaza Boulevard, providing three left turn lanes from the I-25 off-ramps, realigning the frontage road in the northeast quadrant of the interchange, building noise walls near the Arapahoe Road and Yosemite Street intersection and widening Yosemite Street from Yosemite Circle on the north to Xanthia Street on the south. This project is designed to reduce congestion and improve traffic operations and safety. Substantial completion is slated for summer 2018.
