A 21-day closure of the westbound C-470 off- and on-ramp at Platte Canyon road will begin on Wednesday, July 24th at 8 p.m. and will continue until Thursday, August 15th at 5:30 a.m.

According to the CDOT website, the extended closure will eliminate the need for “over 100 nightly ramp closures and the need for additional traffic switches and the use of additional temporary asphalt. The benefits of this closure will decrease confusion for the traveling public while increasing safety for motorists and construction crews. When completed, the off- and on-ramps will open to their final configuration.”
