DENVER — CDOT will close the eastbound lanes of C-470 between S. Yosemite Street and Interstate 25 Saturday morning while Lone Tree police conduct an investigation into a crash that killed one person earlier this week.
The closure is expected to last about an hour and will start at 8:30 a.m. said CDOT spokeswoman Stacey Stegman.
All traffic will be diverted off the highway at Yosemite. An alternative route includes S. University Boulevard or S. Quebec Street onto E. Lincoln Avenue, across Interstate 25 and back onto C-470 at Peoria Street.
Detectives plan to be on the highway looking for more evidence in a crash that killed a 51-year-old man Thursday morning. Authorities have not said specifically what they will be looking for.
Dennis Dolce died when Erin Finn, 20, was driving west on the highway, crossed the median and collided with his vehicle head-on, police said.
According to the arrest affidavit, Finn fled the scene cloaked in a Halloween costume by hitchhiking a ride from another driver.
Finn was arrested for hit-and-run approximately 15 hours after the accident, which took place at 3:05 a.m. Police closed eastbound C-470, a busy route for commuters, for the entirety of the Thursday morning rush hour during their investigation.
