DENVER — Denver Water will begin a water main installation project near Cherry Creek Shopping Center starting Monday, July 26.
The project near East First Avenue and University Boulevard will lead to lane closures and construction traffic through November 2021.
Denver Water said that although traffic will remain open in both directions on East First Avenue, there will be various lane closures from University Boulevard to Marion Street, 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout the project.
Working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Signage will be placed and delays should be expected when traveling through the project area.

The project is part of the Lead Reduction Program, in which Denver Water will replace customer-owned lead service lines with copper water lines, at no direct charge to the customer, when discovered during a project.
