Eastbound US 36 Project Update

October 1, 2019 - Metro Denver Colorado - Schedule Change Due to Weather

Due to the precipitation expected overnight Tuesday, Oct. 1, the decision has been made to push back the US 36 traffic switch one day. The overnight lane closures will now take place on Wednesday and Thursday nights, Oct. 2 and 3. This decision was made because the project needs to have dry pavement conditions in order to safely and effectively stripe the roadway.

By Friday morning’s commute (Oct. 4), crews anticipate having US 36 back into its original three-lane configuration with Express Lanes open and operational at that time. The following activities are expected to restore US 36 lanes back into its original configuration. Remember: work is weather-dependent.

Lane Closures

8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, through 5 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 3

o    Single-lane closure of both eastbound and westbound US 36 so crews can restripe and move barrier

8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3, through 5 a.m. Friday, Oct. 4

o    Single-lane closure of both eastbound and westbound US 36 so crews can finish restriping the roadway into its original configuration and reset median barrier.


Traffic Changes

In addition to the above lane closures, motorists can expect the following traffic changes:

Thursday morning at 5 a.m.

o    Two eastbound lanes of US 36 will be restored to its original configuration.

o    The bike path will be opened into a temporary configuration shortly after 5 a.m.
