Drivers who use Sheridan Boulevard should start planning an alternate route as the road will close between West 28th and 32nd avenues on the border of Denver and Wheat Ridge from April 29-May 2. Construction is scheduled for the area until June.
The road will close completely starting at 4 a.m. April 29 to accommodate upgrades to the water system. Denver Water customers in the area have also been notified that they may experience water outages during this project.
According to Denver Water, the work is part of an ongoing project that began in mid-April to upgrade portions of an underground vault — underground rooms with valves used to control the pressure and flow of water through pipes.
On May 2, construction crews will open a single lane on northbound Sheridan while the southbound road will stay closed until May 8. Various single-lane closures will continue until the project is finished.
