Bridge installation to cause major I-70 closure through weekend
DENVER — I-70 will close in both directions between I-25 and Federal Boulevard for bridge work starting at 10 p.m. Friday.
The complete closure will continue throughout the weekend. It’s expected to be lifted around 5 a.m. the ensuing Monday. During the closure, crews will demolish the existing Pecos Street bridge over I-70 and roll-in the new 2,400-ton Pecos Street bridge.
Intermittent lane closures will begin at 7 p.m. Friday in preparation for the full closure. Detours will be set up during the closure, with traffic being rerouted to either I-76 or 6th Avenue.
Pecos Street is expected to remain closed through August while crews work to get the new bridge and surrounding roadways fully operational.AlertMe
