A portion of Quebec Street in Denver will close this weekend under Interstate 70 as part of construction for the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Central 70 Project.

The closure will be in both directions from Friday at 8 p.m. to Sunday at 10 a.m.

I-70 will also be impacted with intermittent lane closures on westbound and eastbound lanes at Quebec Street from Friday at 8 p.m. to Saturday at 8 a.m., and from Saturday at 8 p.m. to Sunday at 8 a.m.

These closures will allow crews to demolish the I-70 bridge above Quebec Street.

As a detour, drivers traveling northbound on Quebec Street should use the on-ramp to eastbound I-70, exit at Central Park Boulevard, travel to the Central Park Boulevard on-ramp and exit at the off-ramp to Quebec Street.

Drivers traveling southbound should take the on-ramp to Stapleton North Drive, turn left on Holly Street, turn left to Stapleton South Drive to the Holly Street on-ramp to eastbound I-70 and exit at Quebec Street.

Those traveling to Monaco Street north of I-70 should go south on Monaco Street to Sandown Road and turn left to Quebec Street. From here, they can follow the marked detour for northbound Quebec Street.

The Central 70 Project is reconstructing a 10-mile stretch of I-70, adding an Express Lane in each direction, removing the 56-year-old viaduct and lowering the interstate between Brighton and Colorado boulevards.

This work is weather-dependent and subject to change.
