Traffic signal replacement begins at I-70 and Chambers Road

July 6, 2017 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Project to increase the safety of motorists and pedestrians

DENVER — In mid-July, crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor partner, WL Contractors, will begin a traffic signal replacement project at the intersection of Interstate 70 and Chambers Road. The project is expected to continue through fall 2017.

Work on this project includes removing the existing traffic signals in the north ramps of the intersection in order to install new ones. The project will also upgrade signing and striping, curb ramps, and storm drain outlet protection.

“This intersection is extremely important for metro Denver commuters,” said Paul Jesaitis, Region 1 Transportation Director. “This project aims to improve the safety of both motorists and pedestrians as the traffic in the region continues to grow.”

Work on this intersection is part of a $1.1 million project that will encompass two other intersections in Adams and Arapahoe counties. Crews are expected to begin work at the I-25 and County Line Road, and at the CO 75 and Coal Mine Avenue intersections in the upcoming weeks.


Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 10. Motorists should expect lane closures and lane shifts throughout the duration of the project.

Normal working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. In special cases these hours may be extended.
