Traffic Impacts

  • Traffic shifts, narrowed lanes and reduced speeds are in place at the approaches to and at Exit 264 (Clear Creek Pkwy/Youngfield/32nd Avenue) along both directions of I-70 from Exit 263 (Colorado Mills Pkwy) to Exit 265 (CO 58/Golden)
  • Three lanes of traffic will be maintained during daytime hours, but the lanes are narrower due to the traffic shifts
  • Overnight (non peak-travel hours) single or double lane closures in both directions of I-70 from Exit 263 to Exit 265 will exist until completion
