I-225 Closures Begin Thursday Night

DENVER (CBS4)– There are major closures in place for drivers who travel Interstate 225. It’s the final phase of the widening project.

The construction will take place on I-225 between Mississippi and Parker. When the project is completed, the interstate will be three lanes in each direction. There will also be a light rail extension for trains.

The bridge over Yale Avenue will be torn down beginning Friday at midnight. Alternate routes include Iliff and Peoria. A new bridge will reopen in December.

All lanes of I-225 will close between Parker and Iliff from 9 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Saturday.

An estimated 115,000 vehicles travel that section of I-225 every day.
