TRAFFIC ADVISORY - UPDATED: Expect delays on US 85 northbound at Colorado State Highway 7 in Adams Country through Friday morning, Sept. 1

August 28, 2017 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Traffic will be restricted to one lane on US 85 northbound at Colorado State Highway 7 through 6 am, Friday, Sept. 1, for pavement repair work on the bridge deck.

Crews are rehabilitating the bridge deck on US 85 northbound, requiring a single lane closure through early Friday.  Motorists should prepare for delays.

While work is scheduled to take place during off-peak travel times (nights and early mornings), crews found the pavement surface on this stretch of US 85 northbound to be deteriorating rapidly and needs immediate permanent repairs that will take a longer time to fix.  By Friday morning, work should be completed with both lanes open to traffic.    

The work is part of a $10.2 million project to resurface and repair pavement and bridges on US 85 from Interstate 76 to 168th Avenue.  Other improvements include guardrail and cable barrier installation, and updating traffic signals, signing, and striping.

These updates will significantly improve travel safety along this corridor.
