Nov. 14, 2011 - Construction on Broadway to begin Wednesday
Construction on Broadway to begin Wednesday
Starting on Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011, the Broadway (Euclid to 18th) Transportation Improvements Project will begin construction. The project, previously on hold for federal historic and environmental clearances, was put out for a competitive bid process and a contractor was chosen in late September. The construction along Broadway is expected to take approximately nine months to complete and will be finished by fall 2012.
In general, traffic impacts for fall/winter 2011 include:
Beginning in late 2011/early 2012, full-time lane reductions on Broadway (from two thru lanes in each direction to one thru lane in each direction) and closure of the cross-streets (16th and Euclid) will be necessary to construct the underpass beneath Broadway. For weekly traffic updates, visit www.boulderconezones.net.
For those traveling through the city, alternate routes are advised. For those traveling on Broadway, alternative modes like walking, biking and taking the bus are good options. Otherwise, please travel slowly and use caution in construction zones.
Remaining project improvements include:
Improvements to the Broadway and 18th Street intersection were completed in summer 2011. The newly configured intersection is currently open to traffic, and provides the main vehicular access point from this part of campus to southbound Broadway.
The local match for this project was composed of funding from five agencies: City of Boulder, Boulder County, RTD, CU - including land donation and funding from University of Colorado Student Union and Vice Chancellor for Administration.
