Central 70 Update

 

Construction/Traffic Update

Week of Nov. 12, 2018

The work at the crossing of York Street and the Union Pacific Railroad, just north of 47th Avenue has been completed and the intersection was reopened on the evening of Nov. 7. The Central 70 Project provided free shuttle rides to the Denver Coliseum to vote on Election Day from the Valdez-Perry Library and Focus Points.

Expect upcoming intermittent day and nighttime lane and street restrictions at York Street and 46th Avenue for utility work.
46th Avenue between York Street and Colorado Boulevard has moved to one lane in each direction in a head to head configuration in the former westbound lanes. This change in traffic pattern affects truck access to westbound I-70 from Steele/Vasquez. Trucks will need to travel north on Vasquez Boulevard, and take the 180 degree right turn onto the on-ramp to westbound I-70. See the fact sheet for more information.

Work continues at the Peoria Street and I-70 interchange. See the fact sheet for information on upcoming traffic pattern changes.
