I-70/71 Downtown Update:
New Traffic Pattern for I-70 East Coming Soon

Starting Saturday, October 12, all three lanes of I-70 east will be shifted to the north between Grant Ave. and 18th St. This traffic pattern will be in place for a little over a year so crews can reconstruct the existing lanes of I-70 east.

Changes on I-70 east

The exit ramp from I-70 east to I-71 north will be maintained, but drivers headed north must be in the middle or right lane. I-70 east through traffic should stay left. This is opposite of the current configuration at I-70/71, so drivers should use caution. 

I-70 EB traffic

Later this year, drivers can expect the new ramp from I-70 east to Parsons Avenue to open, replacing the exit ramp to 18th Street. Additionally, the Third Street entrance ramp to I-70 east will close permanently when the new ramp to Parsons opens. These changes are currently planned for November, weather permitting.
