Upcoming full closure of 9th Avenue, east of the 9th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard intersection

February 17, 2017 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - LAKEWOOD – Starting on Monday, Feb. 20, through Friday, Feb. 24, 9th Avenue, east of the 9th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard intersection, will be closed in both directions 24 hours each day.

This closure is necessary forpaving operations as part of the Wadsworth Capacity project.  


Detours will be established to direct traffic around the road closure. Motorists traveling east on 9th Avenue will be directed north to the 10th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard intersection, east on 10th Avenue and south on Teller Street to reconnect to 9th Avenue where they will be able to travel east or west.

The purpose of this project is to improve traffic operations for motorists and pedestrians as population growth in Lakewood continues. This project will increase operational capacity of the 10th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard intersection by adding an additional lane in each direction on Wadsworth Boulevard, as well as adding a multi-use path on either side of the street.

Construction activities are weather dependent and the schedule is subject to change. CDOT, SEMA Construction, Inc. and the City of Lakewood would like to thank motorists for their patience during this construction. This work is part of a series of roadway improvement on Wadsworth Boulevard.
