Travel Impacts for the Week of Oct. 25


Arapahoe County Public Works and Development continues improvements, along with contractor partner Concrete Express Inc., on the Iliff Avenue corridor. 

As part of this corridor improvement project, crews will demolish two dilapidated buildings next week at the northwest corner of Parker Road and Iliff Avenue. Truck hauling operations will take place as part of the demolition at Parker Road and Iliff Avenue. Demolition activities will not impact surrounding businesses. 

Crews will also continue to perform existing roadway, median and sidewalk removals, between Yosemite and Wabash streets. To safely remove the existing median to open the roadway for future widening, crews will conduct daytime single lane closures. 

  • 8:30 a.m. through 3:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 25, through Friday, Oct. 29
    • Daytime intermittent single lane closures on westbound Iliff Avenue from Parker Road (CO 83) to Wabash Street 
    • Daytime intermittent single lane closures on eastbound Iliff Avenue from Wabash Street to Parker Road (CO 83)

All work is weather-dependent and subject to change. Other third party utility work is also being completed in the area, unaffiliated with this project, requiring various lane closures. 

In the future, travelers can expect daytime and nighttime traffic impacts. Intermittent daytime and nighttime lane closures should be expected. Minor impacts to bicycle and pedestrian access will be required. Access to transit stops will be maintained throughout construction.
