DENVER -- A busy stretch of Interstate 70 will be closed in both directions starting Friday night and lasting until Monday.
The closure is a part of the Colorado Department of Transportation's Central 70 Project.
The closure will start at 10 p.m. Friday night and last until 5 a.m. on Monday morning.
I-70 will be closed between Interstate 270 and Steele Street/Vasquez Boulevard in Denver.
Crews will be setting girders for the replacement bridge at Colorado Boulevard over I-70 and starting demolition on the bridge at I-270.
Here are the detours, shared by CDOT:
- Westbound: westbound I-70 traffic will enter northbound I-270, use the off-ramp to westbound I-76, take southbound I-25 and exit onto westbound I-70.
- Eastbound: to detour around the closure, eastbound I-70 traffic will enter onto northbound I-25, use the off-ramp to eastbound I-76, take southbound I-270 and exit onto eastbound I-70. Traffic needing to enter I-70 just before Steele/Vasquez may still do so.
You can always check here for travel times.
The Central 70 Project is expected to wrap-up in 2022.
