Denver Metro Traffic Signal Improvements Project

US Highway 285 Road Construction

CDOT to Begin Road Construction on US Highway 285

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contract partner Sturgeon Electric Company will begin a traffic signal improvements project on March 15. Improvements will take place at the following intersections: US Highway 285 and  Federal Blvd.

Work will include replacing 30 year old signals with newer signals and Microwave Radar Detection equipment, rebuilding traffic signals including reconfiguration of signal heads, adding right turn lanes and updating curb ramps to meet American’s With Disabilities Act standards. Additional work will include the removal of existing curb, gutter and ramps, construction of new median islands and new signing and striping at all intersections. 

Why is the work being completed?  

The upgraded signals and addition of the right turn lanes will improve safety by providing better signal timing and traffic flow for the traveling public. The new ADA ramps will be in compliance with the Public Right of Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG) requirements and will provide functional accessibility to all travelers using our state and US highways. 

When will crews be working?   

  • The project will be in operation: Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.  
  • The project has an anticipated completion date the end of October 2021. 

Travel Impacts

  • Motorists can plan for single lane closures.
