Overnight Closure Planned for US 36 This Weekend

October 8, 2015 - Metro Denver Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Full Westbound US 36 Closure between Interlocken Loop and McCaslin Boulevard
BROOMFIELD/SUPERIOR – As part of the US 36 Express Lanes Project, westbound US 36 will be closed overnight between Interlocken Loop and McCaslin Boulevard on Sunday, Oct. 11, 10 p.m. – 4 a.m., for sign installations.

All westbound traffic, including RTD buses, will follow the detour. Traffic will be detoured off US 36 to northbound Interlocken Loop, directed to northbound 96th Street and then to westbound Dillon Road. From Dillon Road, traffic will take McCaslin Boulevard southbound and reconnect to westbound US 36. 

The construction work on US 36 Phase 2 began in late 2013 and will include an express lane in each direction on US 36, between 88th Street in Louisville/Superior to Table Mesa/Foothills Parkway, in addition to the two free general purpose lanes. The express lanes will accommodate High Occupancy Vehicles (HOVs), Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), which will start running in early 2016, and tolled vehicles. The project is also widening the highway to accommodate 12-foot-wide inside and outside shoulders, replacing several bridges, finishing the commuter bikeway from Boulder to Denver, adding BRT improvements, and installing Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) for tolling. Phase 2 will be complete in early 2016. Phase 1 of the project, from Federal to 88th Street in Louisville/Superior opened summer 2015.
