Full closure of US 6 for National Public Lands Day cleanup of Clear Creek Canyon September 28th

September 24, 2019 - Denver Metro Area, Colorado


JEFFERSON COUNTY — Motorists can expect a full closure of US Highway 6 between Colorado Highway 93/58 and Colorado Highway 119 on Saturday, September 28th for Jefferson County Open Space’s National Public Lands Day cleanup of Clear Creek Canyon Park and the surrounding roadway. This section of US 6 will be closed from 7:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. September 28th. The full closure is necessary for the safety of the nearly 500 event volunteers and staff. Volunteers will conduct stream bank and roadside trash collection, habitat restoration, and erosion control through a 13-mile section of the canyon.

Alternate route:

  • Drivers can take I-70 both eastbound and westbound as an alternate route around the closure, which will result in an additional five to ten minutes of travel time.
  • Access to Black Hawk and Central City is available by using the Central City Parkway (Exit 243 from I-70) or by traveling east on Highway 6 (Exit 244 from I-70) and then north on CO 119.
