Dear Sewall Friends in Denver, it's no secret that traffic has been challenging of late in and around Denver. We wanted to share this construction update with you regarding upcoming road lane adjustments. It's a long list but take a look.....
I work with CDOT on the US 6 Bridges and I-25 Gap Lane Projects. Please read the following information carefully and alert me to any questions or concerns you may have. We also request that you assist in our efforts to spread the word to your residents and other contacts regarding this work, as it will impact anyone who drives I-25 in the Denver area over the weekend of Aug. 8-11.
To accommodate I-25 Gap Lane Project work, along with critical elements of the US 6 Bridges Design Build Project, I-25 will close in both directions between Santa Fe Drive and the US 6 interchange for two extended periods of time over the weekend of Aug. 8, reopening for daytime peak traffic on Saturday.
CDOT’s new I-25 Gap Lane Project will deliver a much-needed improvement to northbound I-25 between Santa Fe Drive and the US 6 interchange by creating a fourth northbound through lane.
Closure 1: Friday night to Saturday morning
10 p.m.* Friday, August 8, through 8 a.m. Saturday, August 9
Closure 2: Saturday night to Monday morning
10 p.m.* Saturday, August 9, through 5 a.m. Monday, August 11
*Note: I-25 completely closes by 10 p.m., although lane closures begin at 9 p.m.
During these weekend closures of I-25, CDOT implores regional through traffic to avoid the area altogether by using I-225, I-70, US 285, C-470, E-470 or any other alternate route. CDOT will work with local jurisdictions to monitor traffic along detour routes and manage congestion across the broader transportation network. Local detour routes for the full I-25 closures go as follows:
Northbound I-25 will detour to northbound Santa Fe Drive, continue north to 8th Avenue, west on 8th Avenue to Kalamath Street, and south on Kalamath Street to westbound US 6 to reconnect with northbound I-25.
Southbound I-25 will detour west on US 6 to Federal Boulevard, south on Federal Boulevard to 5th Avenue to merge onto eastbound US 6 to reconnect with southbound I-25. There could also be delays along eastbound US 6 near I-25 with additional traffic following this detour route.
Northbound Santa Fe Drive: As part of this closure, northbound Santa Fe Drive will close at Mississippi Avenue for the weekend, with traffic detoured on Mississippi Avenue to northbound Broadway and then Lincoln Street. Access to businesses along Santa Fe Drive will be available via Alameda Avenue. Detour signage will guide commuters through the area.
