Section of C-470 to close for construction Thursday night

DOUGLAS COUNTY, — C-470 will be closed between University Boulevard and Quebec Street for overnight construction as the Colorado Department of Transportation adds more lanes.

The highway will close between 10 p.m. Thursday and 5 a.m. Friday. Drivers will be detoured onto County Line Road to get around the construction.

The work is part of the C-470 Express Lanes project, which will add three lanes between Interstate 25 and Wadsworth Boulevard.
