Upcoming full weekend closure on the Colorado Highway 58 ramp to eastbound I-70

May 24, 2018 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1


JEFFERSON COUNTY – Starting Friday, June 1 at 7 p.m. until Monday, June 3 at 5:30 a.m., the Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor SEMA Construction will close the ramp from eastbound Colorado Highway 58 to eastbound Interstate 70 at mile point 5. Observation of the bridge deck condition during previous emergency repairs has warranted a full closure to assess and repair the deck once asphalt is removed on Friday, June 1. This work is a part of the I-70 Resurfacing from 32nd to 44thAvenues project.


A full closure of the CO 58 ramp to eastbound I-70 is required. Signed detours will be in place. Two detour options will be available:

  • Motorists can take eastbound CO 58 to northbound McIntyre Street, then turn right onto 44th Avenue to eastbound I-70. 
  • Eastbound CO 58 will be closed at the I-70 on-ramp and traffic will be diverted onto westbound I-70, where motorists may use the 32nd Avenue or the Denver West interchanges to access I-70 eastbound.


Typical working days are Sundays through Thursdays from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. The project is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2018. Closures are as follows:

  • Through August 2018, there will be double-lane closures on eastbound I-70 starting at 9 p.m. as well as double-lane closures on westbound I-70 starting at 10 p.m.
  • Throughout construction, motorists can expect single- and double-lane closures on westbound I-70 as well as full closures overnight on eastbound CO 58.
