DENVER (CBS4) – The Colorado Department of Transportation will close both directions of Federal Boulevard at 5th Avenue for the weekend to conduct work on its US 6 Bridges Design Build Project.

Federal will be closed from Friday at 9 p.m. until Monday at 5:30 a.m.

“Doing this work over one weekend will allow the project team to complete work that would otherwise take at least several weeks and require multiple closures,” CDOT Project Director Kevin Sullivan said in a statement. “This will significantly speed up the construction schedule and minimize these particular impacts to one weekend only.”

During the weekend closure, crews will:

• Remove the existing asphalt and concrete paving
• Remove existing curb & gutter, sidewalks and driveways
• Install storm drains
• Install new concrete paving, curb and gutter, sidewalks and driveways
• Install new traffic signal components
• Re-stripe Federal Boulevard through the intersection

Local business and neighborhood access will be maintained during this closure. To access eastbound US 6, motorists south of the closure can take 2nd Avenue to Bryant Street and go north to 5th Avenue. Motorists north of the closure can take 8th Avenue to Zuni Street and go south on I-25 to reach eastbound US 6. Access to westbound US 6 will be maintained for motorists north of the closure. For those south of the closure trying to get to westbound US 6, take 2nd Avenue to Bryant Street and go north on Bryant and Canosa Court to 8th Avenue then take 8th Avenue west to Federal Boulevard.
