I-270 Bridge Preventative Maintenance

Winter Shut Down - Work Resumes in Spring 2024

The I-270 Bridge Preventative Maintenance project is on winter shut down with work expected to resume in Spring 2024. The resurfacing portion of the project is complete, with the remaining repair work estimated to take about a month and will take place on the eastbound and westbound lanes of the I-270 bridge over Vasquez Avenue.

About the Project:

Construction began September 28 to resurface six of the eight bridges within a two-mile stretch of I-270 between York Street and Vasquez Boulevard in Adams County. Most of the work will occur over the weekends through late 2023. These bridges are in immediate need of repair. The project will replace the old asphalt with reinforced concrete.

Project Benefits

  • This project will greatly improve the driving surface and safety of these bridge decks until the bridge structures can be completely replaced in the future as part of the I-270 Corridor Improvements Project.
  • Resurfacing the bridges will prevent lengthy and unexpected lane closures in the future because of emergency pavement repairs.

Work Schedule:

  • The project started the weekend of September 28 and is expected to wrap up in late December 2023, depending on weather.
  • To get the project completed as soon as possible, most of the work will take place over the weekends with a single lane closure in one direction of I-270 between York Street and Vasquez Boulevard from 9 p.m. Friday to 1 p.m. Saturday and from 9 p.m. Saturday to 1 p.m. Sunday.

Traffic Impacts:

Motorists can expect the following impacts during the period of construction:

  • Significant delays are expected on Saturdays and Sundays between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Delays up to 25 minutes can be expected. Heavy delays are also expected from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays.
  • Loads wider than 12 feet will be restricted through the work zone.
  • There will be at least one lane of travel open in each direction during construction.
  • During the week, Monday through Thursday, there will be overnight intermittent single lane closures from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • Refer to COtrip.org for real-time travel conditions and road closures.
