Expect Overnight Closures at Eisenhower/Johnson Memorial Tunnels June 11-13

Grinding and striping work to improve visibility

Starting at 10 p.m. Sunday, June 11, crews will begin closing the Eisenhower/Johnson Memorial Tunnels overnight through Tuesday, June 13, to grind and stripe traffic lines on the roadway.

This work will help create a smoother surface and promote longevity of the epoxy paint used for striping. It also will help increase visibility of the lanes.


  • 10 p.m. Sunday, June 11:
    The mobile striping operation starts at the Loveland Bridge (mile point 216) and moves west toward the tunnel.
    • A single left lane will then be closed as crews grind the old markings in the westbound tunnel.
    • The same work will be done eastbound once crews finish westbound.

  • 11 p.m. Sunday, June 11 - 1 a.m. Monday, June 12:
    Expect 30-minute traffic holds once grinding is complete, so crews can restripe the roadway.
    • Closures are required because the paint causes hazmat conditions; travelers cannot be in the tunnel at the same time crews are striping.

  • 10 p.m. Monday, June 12: Crews will do the same work in the right lane instead of the left.

  • 10 p.m. Tuesday, June 13: Crews will grind and restripe the dotted center lines, also called skip rows.
    • 10 p.m. Monday, June 12 - midnight Tuesday, June 13:
      Expect 30-minute traffic holds in both directions.

This work is weather dependent, and the schedule is subject to change.
