Project Update for the Week of May 29

In observance of the holiday weekend, there will be no eastbound or westbound US 36 travel impacts after noon on Friday, May 27, through Tuesday morning, May 31.


Eastbound and Westbound US 36 Traffic Realignment between McCaslin Boulevard and Foothills Parkway

The temporary alignment on westbound US 36 between Foothills Parkway and South Boulder Creek bridge (just west of McCaslin Boulevard) was placed back into the original alignment and will remain this way through the holiday weekend. Traffic will then be placed back into a two-lane configuration with narrowed lanes and shoulders while we complete bridge approach repairs. Work will continue at the westbound alignment through mid-June.

Eastbound US 36 traffic in the same area from Foothills Parkway to the South Boulder Creek bridge has been switched out of the split-lane configuration shown below, and placed into a final phase alignment with narrowed shoulders and lanes. This work is scheduled to be completed by June 5. Please slow down and use caution when entering the new alignments.


Final Surface Smoothing

Expect some daytime and nighttime delays on eastbound and westbound US 36 for final surface smoothing activities. As the project nears completion, final striping, grading, landscaping and surface smoothing will be ongoing.

Multiple ramp closures are scheduled to complete these activities. See below for specific days and times.
