Super 70 - The Chaos Begins Tonight
If you travel I-70 between downtown and the east leg of I-465, get ready for the beginning of Super 70 construction challenges.
Ramp closures and lane restrictions start tonight.
Here's the official word from the city:
On Saturday morning, March 3rd the striping will begin on 70 eastbound with lane restrictions. All eastbound "on ramps" will be closed at this time. All truck restriction signs, speed limits, alternate routes, etc. will be uncovered Saturday morning. The moveable barrier wall installation will begin Sunday, March 4th at approximately 7:00 a.m. and will take approximately three (3) days to complete. Traffic crossover is anticipated to occur Tuesday, March 6th or Wednesday, March 7th. All ramp closures will coincide with the traffic crossover.
But, all this hassle will be worth it when the construction is finished in late 2008 -- or so they tell us.
Keep track of what's happening on that stretch of I-70 between downtown and the eastside leg of I-465 by checking Super 70 website.
