DENVER — A resurfacing project will require lane closures on both the north and southbound lanes of Speer Boulevard over the next weeks, according to Denver Public Works.
A contracted crew will begin milling and paving operations on Monday, July 22 between 29th and Colfax avenues. The work will result in lane closures over the next two weeks.
Below is the anticipated schedule for lane closures:
Inbound Speer Boulevard (into downtown): Two lanes will close and two will remain open on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. while milling is underway. Milling is expected to take about three days to complete, weather permitting. Crews will then move to the southbound stretch.
Outbound Speer Boulevard (out of downtown): Two lanes will close and two remain open on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. while milling is underway, which is expected to take about three days to complete, weather permitting.
When milling is complete, crews will return to the area to pave starting with the inbound stretch. Each stretch is expected to take about three days to complete, with two lanes remaining open while paving is underway. Work hours will be the same.
The work is made possible through $15 million in funding from the Elevate Denver Bond Program which is a 10-year, $937 million general obligation bond voters approved in 2017 to enhance the City and County of Denver by providing critical citywide improvements to the infrastructure.
