Wadsworth Construction Update

Improve Wadsworth with hotline303-390-0878

The northbound Wadsworth Boulevard on-ramp to eastbound I-70/I-76 will close from 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 30 to 6 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 5. During the multi-day full closure, the ramp entrance will be reconstructed in concrete pavement. This work was rescheduled from mid-November due to weather conditions.

Several weeks of construction impacts and lane width restrictions will be eliminated by performing the ramp work under a full closure. The closure will allow crews to safely pour the entire ramp at once. The contractor will work both day and night shifts and over the weekend to complete the work.

A detour route will be provided and alternate routes are advised. The detour will direct drivers to continue north on Wadsworth, turn right (east) on 52nd Avenue, and continue 1.5 miles to Sheridan Boulevard to access I-70 to the south or I-76 to the north. A suggested alternate route is 44th Avenue to Sheridan Boulevard.

Message boards along the corridor will provide closure schedule information. All work is weather-dependent, and the construction schedule is subject to change.
