CDOT Message: Delays and Ramp Closures Expected on Westbound I-76 near US 85 Sunday Night

On Sunday, Dec. 4 starting at 8 p.m., motorists should expect delays overnight on westbound Interstate 76 while crews shift travel lanes onto new detour pavement. Westbound I-76 will be reduced to a single lane from 8 p.m. on Sunday until 5 a.m. on Monday morning. 

Crews will temporarily close the westbound I-76 off-ramp to 96th Avenue (exit 11) starting at 8 p.m. on Sunday in order to move temporary barrier and restripe the highway. All off-ramp traffic will be directed one mile west to the 88th Avenue off-ramp (exit 10). 

Southbound US Highway 85 direct access to westbound I-76 will close at 104th Avenue starting at 10 p.m. on Sunday, Dec 4. A temporary full closure is necessary to complete striping for the new traffic pattern at the ramp junction. To access westbound I-76 from southbound US 85, motorists may use westbound 104th Avenue to southbound (left) Brighton Road to enter westbound I-76 at 96th Avenue. 

All ramps and lane closures will reopen by 5 a.m. on Monday. This work will be rescheduled for the evening of Monday, Dec. 5 if weather delays the traffic shift.
 
All work is weather-dependent and subject to change.

This work is part of the I-76 at US Highway 85 reconstruction project. An eastbound I-76 traffic shift is anticipated later this month. Shifting traffic onto the detour pavement allows permanent construction to begin on the outside lanes of I-76 and US 85. Visit the project website for more information.
