TRAFFIC ADVISORY KIPLING STREET AND W. 49TH AVENUE
Work began to permanently change the intersection at W. 49th Avenue and Kipling Street to install center medians. When work is completed, the intersection will no longer allow for left turning. The signal at W. 49th Ave. will be removed and traffic in all directions will only be allowed a right-in or right-out.

These changes are expected to improve traffic flow and safety along Kipling Street and the westbound I-70 off-ramp with the removal of the congested 49th Avenue traffic signal and construction of a second right turn lane from the westbound I-70 off ramp onto Kipling Street. Once implemented, drivers will be able to make right turns only in and out of 49th Avenue at Kipling Street. A second left turn lane will be added on westbound 50th Avenue to turn south on Kipling Street to accommodate the changes at 49th Avenue.

TRAVEL IMPACTS:
• Daytime Work: Monday, October 19 to Friday, October 23, from 7:30 am to 5 pm the east side of the intersection at W 49th Avenue and Kipling Street will have limited access.
• Nighttime Work: Sunday, October 18 to Thursday, October 22, from 7:00 pm to 5:00 am, motorists can expect various single lane closures with full closures with up to 5 minute delays as crews install new signal poles and mast arms along NB and SB Kipling.
• Detour: Take W. 50th Avenue EB to SB Independence Street, to W. 49th Avenue. This detour is not expected to add any time onto your commute.

When work is completed, the new traffic configuration shown above will be right-in/right-out only

COVID-19
Safe transportation infrastructure is essential for emergency first responders and freight drivers as Colorado navigates the COVID-19 pandemic. With that in mind, road maintenance and construction continue on CDOT projects with social distancing and other health safety measures to reduce COVID-19 exposure on the worksite. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment announced guidelines for construction activities. The public is urged to join the campaign for #DoingMyPartCO by practicing social distancing, wearing face masks, staying at home when possible, and avoiding nonessential travel. With fewer vehicles on the roads, CDOT crews will be able to work more efficiently and safely.
