I-76 at US 85 Reconstruction

Traffic Alerts

From 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. throughout November, expect various lane closures as crews complete finishing work.

CDOT is currently reconstructing the Interstate 76 and US Highway 85 interchange. The project will improve the geometry of the westbound I-76 curve where the interstate joins southbound US 85.

Additionally, this project will:

  • Upgrade the transition to current design standards to improve safety and traffic flow.
  • Add a travel lane from southbound US 85 to 96th Avenue.
  • Resurface portions of I-76 with new concrete pavement.
  • Provide new roadway drainage, lighting and water-quality measures.

Construction will be completed in 2017.

Traffic Impacts

  • During construction, the speed limit on I-76 is reduced to 55 mph, and fines are doubled.

  • An oversized vehicle width restriction of 11 feet is strictly enforced.
    • Westbound I-76 oversized vehicles must exit the interstate by CO 2 (Sable Boulevard), Exit 16.
  • All work is weather permitting and schedules are subject to change.
