Aging Sign Structures Set for Replacement
CDOT and prime contractor, WL Contractors Inc., will replace five overhead sign bridges and cantilever sign structures along I-25, I-70 and I-76 between late February and June. The majority of the work will be performed during the day outside of travel lanes. The project will also require intermittent, overnight lane closures (Sunday through Thursday). Motorists should expect short-term traffic impacts in each of the following three work zones while sign structure work takes place.
- Northbound I-25 between 17th Avenue and Speer Boulevard (MP 210 – 212)
- Westbound I-70 between Sheridan Boulevard and Wadsworth Boulevard (MP 269 – 271)
- Eastbound I-76 between Federal Boulevard and Pecos Street (MP 3 – 4)
Both northbound I-25 and westbound I-70 will be subject to two nights of full closure for overhead sign bridge removal. As the project progresses, visit www.codot.gov/projects/denver-metro-sign-structures for more information on planned highway closures including detour routes.
