Westbound Alameda Avenue Between Santa Fe Drive and Cherokee Street Closed Overnight Feb. 24-27 and March 3-6

DENVER—Westbound Alameda Avenue will be closed between Santa Fe Drive and Cherokee Street from 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 24 to 5 a.m. Monday, Feb. 27, and from 9 p.m. Friday, March 3 to 5 a.m. Monday, March 6. This closure allows crews to install a pipe and perform subgrade operations.

This closure is a part of the I-25 and Santa Fe Drive project. Dates are subject to change depending on weather.

Traffic Impacts

To detour around this closure:

  1. Take Cherokee Street north to Bayaud Avenue.
  2. Head west to Santa Fe Drive.
  3. Go north to Ellsworth Avenue.
  4. Go west to Kalamath Street.
  5. Head south to rejoin with Alameda Avenue.

Background

This $24 million project began in June 2014 and is scheduled to complete 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. Those phases of the project are now complete.

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.
