Traffic Alert, June 16, 2013

Road closures and maintenance projects may affect traffic this week:

Ute Water Waterline Replacement: Crews will be installing waterline along 28 Road north of Patterson Road between Hawthorne Avenue and Courtland Avenue. 28 Road will be closed to through traffic between Hawthorne and Courtland avenues from 7 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Detour routes will be well-marked.

22 Road Realignment Project at Highway 6: This project is reconstructing one-third of a mile of U.S. Highway 6 between Valley Court and the Interstate 70 Exit 26 Interchange and one-half mile of 22 Road. The intersection of U.S. Highway 6 and 22 Road will move 500 feet west of its existing location to improve safety and efficiency. A new connecting street will be built linking Valley Court to 22 Road. There will be lane shifts along U.S. Highway 6, between Valley Court and the I-70 Interchange (Exit 26). 

The speed limit through the work zone has been reduced to 35 mph and will be enforced.  The U.S. Highway 6 intersection with 22 Road remains open. Upcoming construction phases will require a temporary closure of 22 Road, currently scheduled for July 2013. Public notice with specific dates will be given prior to the closure.

I-70B Reconstruction Project East of 25 Road: The north side of the Rimrock/Independent intersection is now open to traffic; however, small sections of concrete work will need to be done to complete the intersection.

On Monday, crews will pave the main line from west of the intersection to the west end of the project. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday, crews will pour curbing along the north side of the main line lanes.

Beginning Monday through June 25, crews will grade and trim North Frontage Road. Access will be maintained at all times during the work, although detours may be placed. The right-in, right-out access from I-70B at Auto Zone will be closed. Access to the North Frontage Road from I-70B will be available through the Independent Avenue intersection or through the right-in, right-out access from I-70B at the west end of the project near Starbucks.

Street Striping: City crews will stripe the following streets Monday through Thursday: 26 Road from G to H roads; 26 1/2 Road from G to I roads; 
27 Road from G to H roads; Crossroads Boulevard from 27 Road to Horizon Drive; H Road from 26 Road to Horizon Drive; Lanai Drive from H Road to Caribbean Drive.
