Check out the Weekly Updates section below for the latest construction and travel impact information.

Project Overview

This project includes modernizing and improving Wadsworth from 35th Avenue to I-70 with efficient and safe intersection designs, safer entrances and exits for vehicles accessing businesses, a continuous sidewalk on the west, and a bike/pedestrian path on the east side of Wadsworth from 35th Avenue to the Clear Creek Trail.

The current project is primarily between 41st Avenue north to I-70. Several improvements between 41st Avenue and 35th Avenue are included. The project will construct a new safe and efficient intersection at 44th Avenue called a continuous flow intersection (CFI). The CFI makes the best use of land for maximum traffic flow, while prioritizing safety.

    From 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11 to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13, northbound Wadsworth will be reduced to a single lane from 44th Ave to the eastbound I-70 on-ramp. The extended lane closure is necessary for driver and construction crew safety while the new storm sewer system is placed in a narrow work area near 47th Ave. Some delay is expected on northbound Wadsworth during peak travel times on Monday. Drivers are encouraged to plan ahead, and alternate routes are advised.

    Crews will work both day and night shifts for at least one more week. Intermittent equipment noise is possible overnight.

    All work is weather-dependent, and schedules are subject to change.

    Questions or concerns? Call the hotline at 303-390-0878. Project emails cannot be retrieved at this time as the city works to resolve a system outage.
