Major closure this weekend for I-70 westbound lanes

Local News

DENVER (KDVR) — Westbound lanes of Interstate 70 will be closed to traffic this weekend through most of the Central 70 Project.

The lane closure will extend from Interstate 270 to Colorado Boulevard. Westbound lanes will be shut down starting 10 p.m. on Friday, through 5 a.m. on Monday.

Crews are finalizing paving through this stretch of I-70. The Colorado Department of Transportation said this closure should be the last of any major “one directional weekend closures,” in the Central 70 Project. This comes after a delay in the westbound lane construction due to an asphalt shortage and heavy rain.

The demolition of the elevated portion of the highway is expected to end next month. The entire Central 70 Project is predicted to be completed by late 2023.
