Emergency roadwork on WB I-76 leads to delays near Commerce City

The closure of one lane of traffic is expected to last throughout the day, CDOT said.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Emergency roadwork is leading to delays Tuesday morning on a stretch of westbound Interstate 76 near Commerce City, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). 

The closure, which initially shut down all lanes of westbound traffic, is at the exit to I-25 from I-76. 

The right lane of traffic has since reopened. The left lane will remain closed for most of the day for bridge repair, CDOT said. 

CDOT said to expect long delays throughout the area. Motorists are asked to take an alternate route, if possible.
