Improvements to 72nd and Indiana now underway

Posted

Starting on Monday, June 4, the City of Arvada and contractor partner, Jalisco International began a year-long project to widen the intersection of Indiana Street (Colorado Highway 72) and W. 72nd Avenue This $7 million project is hoped to improve the safety and functionality of this heavily traveled intersection.

Motorists should expect intermittent lane closures with alternating traffic on both Indiana Street and W. 72nd Avenue, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Occasional night and weekend work is expected. One lane in each direction will be available when work is not occurring and whenever possible during working hours. The project is weather-dependent and the schedule is subject to change.

In mid-June, the West leg of W. 69th Avenue at Indiana St. will be temporarily closed to all traffic for several days while crews install a water line and upgrade drainage facilities. Once W. 69th Avenue reopens, W. 69th Place will close for similar improvements. Signed detour routes will be provided.

The W. 72nd Avenue and Indiana Street improvement project is designed to accommodate future traffic volumes. Two lanes in each direction will be provided through the intersection and Indiana Street will be widened to accommodate double left-turn lanes in both directions.

Other project improvements include: new sidewalks and on-street bike lanes; undergrounding utilities; water line replacement; storm sewer upgrades; a bridge expansion on 72nd Avenue over the Croke Canal; and upgraded a traffic signal.

Plans to improve the intersection have been in development since 2013.

Additional information is available by calling the project hotline at 720-900-8670, emailing indiana72nd@workzone.info, or visiting the project website at http://arvada.org/Indiana-72nd.
