Drivers who travel U.S. 36 between Westminster and Boulder can expect delays from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday to Wednesday as crews install a glare screen on the temporary concrete barrier used to shift traffic for the eastbound U.S. 36 Emergency Rebuild Project, a news release stated.
The glare screen will seek to enhance driver safety as construction crews continue to make repairs to U.S. 36, which cracked in early July. The glare screens are comprised of green slats that will be placed on top of the concrete barrier used to separate traffic. This will help to reduce headlight glare and increase nighttime visibility for drivers along the corridor.
To safely complete this work, crews will close the left lanes of both eastbound and westbound U.S. 36 in the half-mile construction zone between Wadsworth Boulevard and 104th Avenue. Drivers will still have one lane for travel but should expect delays.
Crews are continuing to work to remove the damaged retaining wall. Once that is completed, work will begin on final repairs.
All construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change, the news release said.
