Closure of westbound I-70 from I-270 to Colorado Blvd. rescheduled for July 30
As part of the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Central 70 Project, westbound Interstate 70 has been rescheduled to close between I-270 and Colorado Blvd. at 10 p.m., Friday, July 30, through 5 a.m., Monday, August 2, for final paving operations. This marks the last one-directional full weekend closure in the center segment between Colorado Blvd. and Quebec St..
Closing a stretch of I-70 to complete all of the paving over a weekend eliminates months of nightly lane closures. It also ensures the road will be smoother and safer, as there will be fewer seams in the asphalt.
The full weekend closure of eastbound I-70 the weekend of July 16 went well and traffic is now driving in its new, final configuration and will notice wider lanes and a smoother ride.
Come Monday, August 2, traffic will be in its final alignment in the center segment with some additional punch list items that crews will work to finish throughout the summer. By fall, crews will have completed eight miles of the 10-mile Project.
Westbound I-70 from I-270 to Colorado Blvd. will be closed from 10 p.m., Friday, July 30, through 5 a.m., Monday, August 2.

When hundreds of people experiencing chronic homelessness were offered housing and provided the supportive services they needed to thrive, they remained housed and reduced their interactions with costly emergency services years into the program, according to a new independent analysis of Denver’s innovative Supportive Housing Social Impact Bond initiative (SIB).
Calling the program a “remarkable success,” the final evaluation report on the Denver SIB by Urban Institute researchers showed participants improved their well-being through increased access to and use of preventive healthcare to address their underlying diagnoses and decreased their use of costly emergency care.
