DENVER (CBS4)- Drivers can expect major delays overnight on Interstate 70 in east Denver for more than a week.

Starting Sunday, August 14 and continuing for eight consecutive nights through Monday, August 22, Colorado Department of Transportation crews will demolish the old Stapleton Airport runway service road over I-70.

That road is located between Havana Street and Quebec Street. The work is part of the ongoing Central Park Boulevard interchange improvement project.

On Saturday, August 13, a right lane closure will be in effect on westbound I-70 only between Havana Street and Quebec Street from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday. This closure will allow crews to begin utility removals and work on removing the bridge span that isn’t over traffic.

There will be various full closures of I-70 between Quebec Street and Havana Street from August 14 through August 22.

Eastbound I-70 between Quebec Street and Havana Street:

August 14 and August 18: Full closure from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night.
August 19: Full closure from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
August 20: Full closure from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m.
August 21: Full closure from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Westbound I-70 between Havana Street and Quebec Street:

August 14 and August 18: Full closure from 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night.
August 19: Full closure from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
August 20: Full closure from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m.
August 21: Full closure from 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m.

During all of the full closures of I-70, motorists will be detoured via the on and off ramps at the new diamond interchange at Central Park Boulevard.

One lane of eastbound I-270 between Quebec Street and I-70 will be closed from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday through Thursday, August 14 – 18, from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m., Friday and Saturday, August 19 and 20, and from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday, August 21.

Major delays are possible and alternate routes are strongly advised.

CDOT reminds motorists to plan ahead, obey all construction signs and flaggers and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.” Most fines for infractions that occur in the work zone will be doubled.

This interchange improvement project constructs a full interchange at I-70 and Central Park Boulevard, which is located between Havana Street and Quebec Street. The project will construct all ramps connecting Central Park Boulevard with eastbound and westbound I-70 and I-270.
