The following road construction projects are being managed by governmental organizations other than the City of Commerce City, but they will affect driving conditions within the city in the weeks and months to come:
INTERSTATE 76 AND HIGHWAY 85 INTERCHANGEOverview: This Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) project improves safety and traffic flow of the westbound I-76 curve where the interstate joins southbound US 85. An additional travel lane from southbound US 85 to E. 96th Avenue will be built and portions of I-76 will receive new concrete pavement.
Schedule and Impacts: Construction is underway and will continue until late 2017 or early 2018. Motorists should expect long-term lane closures and reduced speed limits in both directions. In late October, crews will temporarily close eastbound I-76 north of E. 96th Avenue to all traffic overnight for one or two nights. Closure dates and detours will be posted on the project website.
