Seven-Night Full Closure on US 36 Between Church Ranch and Wadsworth March 8-14

March 4, 2015 - Denver Metro/CDOT Region 1 - BROOMFIELD – As part of the US 36 Express Lanes Project, there will be a seven-night closure of eastbound and westbound US 36 on March 8-14, from Church Ranch Boulevard to Wadsworth Parkway.

This closure is necessary to complete critical work on the Promenade and BNSF Railway bridges.

The overnight closures are scheduled on March 8, 9 p.m.-5:30 a.m., and March 9-14, 10 p.m.-5:30 a.m. The US 36 & Broomfield Park-n-Ride and the US 36 & Church Ranch Park-n-Ride will be temporarily relocated, but RTD routes and bus schedules will not be impacted during this closure. RTD patrons will continue to use the RTD Park-n-Ride lots and follow the posted directional signs to the temporary stops.

“We have a lot of exciting work coming up on the project, especially throughout the next couple of months,” said CDOT Project Director Mark Gosselin. “We are all working hard as we ramp up for a Phase 1 opening this year.”

The detour for the closure is attached.

The US 36 Express Lanes Project is a multi-modal project that will build an express lane in each direction on US 36, in addition to the two free general purpose lanes. The express lanes will accommodate High Occupancy Vehicles (HOV), Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and tolled vehicles. In addition, the project is replacing several bridges, building a commuter bikeway, adding BRT improvements, and installing Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) for tolling, transit and traveler information, and incident management.  Phase 1, from Federal Boulevard to 88th Street in Louisville/Superior, will open to the public in 2015. Phase 2, from 88th Street to Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, will open in 2016.
