Local Street Restrictions and Ongoing Closures

Sheridan Boulevard Single Lane Restrictions – Northbound and southbound Sheridan Boulevard will have single lane restrictions from 92nd to 88th Avenue, Dec. 22 and 23, 8 p.m.-5:30 a.m., to complete the tie in to the new on and off ramps.

South Boulder Creek Trail Closure– The South Boulder Creek Trail will be closed on either side of US 36 until February 2015. The trail between South Boulder Road and Marshall Road will remain open, however, for the safety of the traveling public, access under US 36 will not be allowed. This closure is necessary for the improvements being made to the South Boulder Creek bridge.

Upcoming Closures

Southbound McCaslin Boulevard to Eastbound US 36 Loop Ramp Closure – The existing loop ramp from southbound McCaslin Boulevard to eastbound US 36 will close permanently in January 2015. This closure is necessary to construct the new eastbound US 36 dedicated RTD bus ramp, which will mirror the nearly completed ramp on the westbound side. Prior to the loop ramp closure, the new southbound McCaslin Boulevard to eastbound US 36 on-ramp will be completed, and traffic will be directed to the new ramp for access to eastbound US 36. During this phase of construction, traffic will yield at a temporary light to make a left turn onto the eastbound ramp.
