Westbound US6 On Ramp Closed at Garrison Street

DENVER – As part of US 6 over Garrison Street bridge replacement project, the westbound US6 on ramp at Garrison Street will be closed daily from 8:00am to 4:00pm, starting on Monday, July 13 until Saturday, July 18. An alternate route is advised.

Background
The replacement of the existing and structurally deficient bridge along US 6 over Garrison Street started in January 2015 and will be completed in five phases. Three of the phases are for bridge demolition and reconstruction. In each phase, a section of the existing bridge will be demolished while a section of the new bridge is constructed. Three lanes in each direction on US 6 will be maintained at peak travel times throughout the project, but a series of shifts in the lanes will accompany each phase. Intermittent night work will result in lane closures.

The construction project will provide greater vertical sight distance on US 6, improve drainage, widen lanes on both US6 and Garrison Street and improve sidewalks, signals, bike lanes, aesthetics and lighting under the bridge.

The City of Lakewood has been an important partner in the planning and development of this project, which is scheduled for completion in late 2015.

CDOT and the contractor team, led by Hamon Infrastructure, would like to remind motorists to slow down in the construction area. Fines will be doubled within the work zone.
