COMMERCE CITY, COLO. (Sept. 22, 2016) - Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 28, Tower Road will be closed in both directions between E. 88th and E. 96th avenues for about three months while work is done to widen the road. The closure will speed up construction and reduce safety hazards for both workers and drivers.

To bypass the closure, Tower Road drivers will be detoured west onto Buckley Road using E. 96th and E. 88th avenues to connect with Tower. This detour route involves temporarily re-opening a stretch of Buckley Road that was shut down with the opening of the E. 96th Avenue extension last year. A signal will be in place at the intersection of E. 96th Avenue and Buckley Road to manage increased volume and vehicle turns. Signage will direct drivers during the 3-mile long detour.

“The detour will affect commuters so drivers should plan ahead and expect delays during peak traffic hours,” said Maria D’Andrea, director of public works. “We appreciate everyone’s patience during this project. The final product will be a modern roadway that provides an important north-south connection in the city.”

The Tower Road widening project is one of five projects in Commerce City’s voter-approved capital improvement program. The project will widen Tower Road to two full lanes in each direction; provide a dedicated 10-foot-wide, multi-use pathway on the west side of the roadway; and a 6-foot-wide sidewalk on the east side. It is designed to increase vehicle capacity and improve safety and drainage. The Tower Road project is scheduled to be completed in late 2017.
