Message from CDOT: Delays and ramp closure expected on eastbound I-76 near 96th Avenue

On Wednesday, Feb. 8 starting at 8 p.m., motorists should expect delays overnight on eastbound Interstate 76 while crews shift travel lanes onto new detour pavement. Eastbound I-76 will be reduced to a single lane from 8 p.m. on Wednesday until 5:30 a.m. on Thursday morning.
 
Crews will temporarily close the 96th Avenue on-ramp to eastbound I-76 starting at 10 p.m. on Wednesday in order to move temporary barrier and restripe the highway. All on-ramp traffic will be directed onto westbound I-76 to make a U-turn at the 88th Avenue interchange.
 
The ramp and lane closures will reopen by 5:30 a.m. on Thursday.
 
If work is delayed due to weather, the traffic switch and ramp closure will occur overnight on Thursday. All work is weather-dependent and subject to change.
 
DETOUR ROUTES
 
To access eastbound I-76 from 96th Avenue, the signed detour will direct motorists to enter westbound I-76 at the roundabout, proceed on westbound I-76 for approximately one mile, exit the highway at 88th Avenue (exit 10), turn east (left) on 88th Avenue, and turn north (left) to enter eastbound I-76.
 
This work is part of the I-76 at US Highway 85 reconstruction project. Shifting eastbound I-76 traffic onto the detour pavement allows permanent construction to begin on the outside lanes of I-76. Crews are currently placing permanent pavement along westbound I-76 and southbound US 85 after a similar traffic shift occurred in December 2016.

More information is available on CDOT's website.
