Lanes closed on northbound Speer downtown starting Friday

Downtown drivers Friday morning will be greeted with more lanes closed on North Speer Boulevard.

Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure will start work Friday to replace concrete at Speer and Larimer Street. The work will run through next Thursday.

Several northbound lanes will be closed heading toward Larimer to give crews space to work, city officials said in a news release. They said the plan is to have two lanes open to traffic.

The northbound Speer travel lanes will begin to taper north of Colfax Avenue, continuing through the Larimer Street intersection.

Officials asked drivers to consider alternate routes while the work is underway.

The intersection work is part of a larger Elevate Denver Bond project that is replacing the 64-year-old bridge on Larimer Street over Cherry Creek redoing Larimer Street between 14th Street and Speer with a bikeway, wider sidewalks, more lighting and seating and planters.

The project is anticipated to be completed in the fall of this year.
