Weekend Closure: Westbound Alameda Avenue Between Santa Fe and Cherokee

DENVER—From 9 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 2 to 12 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 5, westbound Alameda Avenue will be closed between Santa Fe Drive and Cherokee Street to accommodate paving operations. This closure is a part of the I-25 and Santa Fe Drive project.

Traffic Impacts

To detour around this closure, take Cherokee Street north to Bayaud Avenue, west to Santa Fe Drive, north to Ellsworth Avenue, west to Kalamath Street and south to rejoin with Alameda Avenue.

Northbound Santa Fe Drive will be reduced to one lane during this time period to accommodate paving operations at Alameda Avenue. Motorists should expect delays when driving through the area. Alternate routes are advised.


This $24 million project began in June 2014 and is scheduled to be completed in spring 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.

The current phase focuses primarily on Santa Fe Drive, Alameda Avenue and southbound Kalamath Street, 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 and will help to reduce congestion, and improve mobility in this heavily traveled section of the metro area.
