According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, on May 8, as section of U.S. 36, from Wadsworth Parkway and Church Ranch Boulevard, will be closed for eight nights.
Crews will be working to install bridge grinders and deck panels to the new Uptown Avenue bridge.
Both the eastbound and westbound lanes will be closed from 10:00 p.m to 5:30 a.m., Sunday through Thursday and from 10:00 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
“We are installing 22 girders, weighing approximately 98,000 pounds each across the highway, so the closure is necessary for safety of the traveling public,” said CDOT Project Director John Schwab. “While a detour route will be in place, we encourage motorists to use alternate routes, if possible, as there will likely be delays.”
To view the detour, go to www.coloradodot.info/projects/US36ExpressLanes/federal-blvd-to-88th/Images/uptown-ave-bridge-detour/view. CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all construction signs and flaggers and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
