US 36 Traffic Impacts for the Week of May 13, 2013
East Flatiron Crossing Drive Sidewalk is Now Open!
US 36 Nightly Closures through May 15
Nightly closures continue on east and westbound US 36 from Wadsworth Parkway to Church Ranch Boulevard, 10 p.m.-5:30 a.m. on weekdays and 10 p.m.-7 a.m. on weekends, through May 15. The closure is necessary for safety for the girder installation on the Uptown Avenue (Olde Wadsworth) bridge. A clearly marked detour is in place, but we encourage drivers to avoid the area during this construction and to expect delays. All affected RTD bus stops, including the Church Ranch Park-n-Ride and the US 36 & Broomfield Park-n-Ride, are temporarily relocated. Signs are posted to direct riders to the temporary bus stops.

Nightly single lane restrictions are scheduled May 13-18, 9 p.m.-5:30 a.m., on east and westbound US 36 from 88th Street to East Flatiron. The restrictions are necessary for asphalt paving and barrier removal. Watch for increased truck traffic entering and exiting the roadway.
Local Street Closures
There will be a single lane restriction on Commerce Street between 116th and 120th Avenues, May 13-17, 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m., for utility work.
One-night Closure of East and Westbound US 36 under Wadsworth Parkway Bridge
Weather permitting, east and westbound US 36 will be closed on May 22, 9 p.m.-5:30 a.m., for a quarter mile in each direction under the bridge. This closure is necessary for safety to pour concrete on the new bridge deck. Traffic will be taken off at the exit ramps and immediately routed back onto the highway, but minimal delays are expected.
Weather has impacted construction on the sidewalks and trails. They will be reopened as soon as possible.
East Interlocken Trail Closure – The East Interlocken Trail underpass under US 36 will be closed from US 36 to just past Industrial Lane until June 1, 2013.
Wadsworth Parkway Sidewalk Detour - The Wadsworth Parkway sidewalk will be detoured through fall 2013 for the Wadsworth Parkway bridge replacement. A temporary sidewalk has been constructed to allow pedestrians access to cross over US 36 via Industrial Lane and Commerce Street. The sidewalk detour route is posted here.
Speed limit reduced from 65 to 55 miles per hour throughout the US 36 Corridor.
Planned construction activities are subject to change due to weather and unanticipated schedule changes.
