Church Ranch/104th to Wadsworth Boulevard - Upcoming U.S. 287 off-ramp closure
The eastbound U.S. 287 off-ramp on U.S. 36 will be closed for paving operations starting at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 16, through 5:30 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19. All U.S. 36 eastbound traffic needing to access this exit ramp will be detoured to Church Ranch Boulevard. Additionally, alternate routes will be marked for local traffic at the Interlocken exit. Detours will be posted on the project website and will be clearly marked. This activity is the beginning phase for the reconstruction of the new Wadsworth Parkway Bridge.
Upcoming Wadsworth Parkway sidewalk detour
As construction for the temporary and permanent ramps begins, CDOT will be detouring the Wadsworth Parkway sidewalk in mid- to late November. A temporary sidewalk will be constructed to allow pedestrians access over U.S. 287. More details, dates and the sidewalk detour route will be posted on the project website as this information becomes available.
Big Dry Creek closure
The Big Dry Creek Trail remains closed between the West 103rd Avenue trail intersection and the Westminster Boulevard trail undercrossing through Nov. 16.
Planned construction activities are subject to change due to weather and unanticipated schedule changes.
Speed limit has been reduced from 65 to 55 miles per hour throughout the U.S. 36 corridor.
