Central 70 Project - Upcoming Closures
April 5, 2019 - Beginning tonight at 8 p.m., Peoria Street will close underneath I-70. The road will reopen at 9 a.m. and stay open during the day. It will close again on Saturday, April 6 from 8 p.m.-9 a.m. Construction crews will be setting bridge beams on the newly widened portions of the I-70 bridge over Peoria Street. Please see the detour map.
Next weekend we will have a full closure of east and westbound I-70 from Colorado Boulevard to I-270 to set bridge beams over I-70 on the new I-270 flyover. To complete this work, the highway will be closed on April 12 at 10 p.m. to April 15 at 5 a.m. The main westbound detour is up I-270, to I-76, and down I-25. Reverse for the eastbound detour. I-70 will remain open between I-25 and Colorado Boulevard, with access to Washington Street, Brighton Boulevard, York Street, Steele Street/Vasquez Boulevard, and Colorado Boulevard. See detour map.
These closures will be input into Waze and Google Maps so drivers using GPS should not have any issues navigating the closure.
