Sheridan Boulevard Repaving and Repairs Project Starts this Week

Expect traffic impacts from Arizona Avenue to Hampden Avenue

DENVER—Crews are scheduled to begin repaving and other repair work this week on Sheridan Boulevard (Colorado Highway 95) between Arizona Avenue and Hampden Avenue (US Highway 285). CDOT has targeted winter 2017 for this project to be complete.

Traffic Impacts

Normal working hours are 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, and from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Fridays. Night work is expected to begin in August, from 7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Sunday through Thursday.

Motorists can expect various right- and left-lane closures along Sheridan Boulevard throughout the construction zone. Delays—expected for certain phases—will be communicated via emailed alerts.

Project Info

Work on this $5.2 million project includes asphalt repaving, concrete ADA curb ramp upgrades, minor repairs of the Bear Creek bridge, and traffic signal pole replacements at the intersections of Evans and Yale avenues.

"This project will address much-needed maintenance for one of the city's most-used highways," said CDOT Resident Engineer Robert Smith. "The repairs will not only create a smoother driving surface for motorists, but the upgraded curb ramps and traffic signal upgrades are being made with pedestrians in mind."


Initial phases of the project include concrete work associated with ramp and gutter upgrades. Asphalt removal and replacement will begin in mid-August and take place at night, with minimal traffic impacts.

Bridge work over Bear Creek near Hampden Avenue will be conducted in September, while the traffic signal pole replacements will take place from June to November.
