Construction work will close C-470 at Broadway early next week, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.
C-470 will be closed from 10 p.m. March 19 until 5 a.m. March 20, while Broadway will also be closed from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. On C-470, traffic will detour on the on- and off-ramps to return to C-470. Northbound Broadway traffic will detour to University Boulevard and return to Broadway along C-470, while southbound traffic will detour to Lucent Boulevard and return to Broadway.
The closure is the result of bridge-widening work on the C-470 overpass at Broadway, part of the expansion of the highway that got underway late last year. The project will add toll lanes, with two of them westbound between I-25 and Colorado and one from Colorado to Wadsworth Boulevard, and one eastbound toll lane from Platte Canyon Road to I-25.
In addition to the express lanes, upgrades will include pavement reconstruction, auxiliary lanes at certain locations, curve realignment, widening or replacement of bridges and grade separations for the C-470 multi-use trail that runs parallel to the freeway. Work is expected to be completed in 2019.
