Wadsworth (CO 121) Resurfacing from I-70 to 65th Avenue

Project Complete!

In late April, the Colorado Department of Transportation and
contractor Brannan Sand & Gravel are scheduled to begin a resurfacing project along Wadsworth Boulevard in Arvada from the Interstate 70 interchange to 65th Avenue. Work will include daytime and nighttime operations to repave the road and the I-70 on and off-ramps which will improve the rideability along this 2.5-mile stretch. “Improving high-traffic roadways through resurfacing and bringing curb ramps to ADA compliance allows both motorists and pedestrians to travel safely through the area,” says Shoshana Lew, executive director for CDOT.

Other improvements include:

  • Bringing curb ramps to Americans with Disabilities (ADA) compliance
  • Installing a median at Wadsworth Blvd & 62nd Ave
  • Upgrading vehicle detection systems at all traffic signals within the project limits
  • Replacing the expansion joint for the bridge over Ralston Creek
  • New pavement markings
