Three week project to rebuild Colorado and Hampden intersection will cause closures, delays
Last Updated: 157 days ago
DENVER - Drivers on Hampden Avenue at Colorado Boulevard should expect lane closures, turn restrictions and delays for the next three weeks.
The Colorado Department of Transportation is rebuilding the intersection.
"Instead of impacting traffic for three months, we can complete the work in about 20 days, greatly reducing the overall impacts to the traveling public," said CDOT engineer John Hall.
Crews will be working in the area 24 hours a day to complete most of the work on July 26.
During the 20-day period, two through lanes of eastbound and westbound Hampden Avenue will remain open during peak hours. However, left turns from Hampden Avenue will be prohibited.
Through traffic on Colorado Boulevard will be prohibited, but right turns from northbound and southbound Colorado Boulevard will be permitted.
The project will cost $1.7 million. When complete, at the end of August, the intersection will have an improved driving surface, reducing the wear and tear on vehicles, according to CDOT.
