Closure of Eastbound 29th Ave. from Fenton St. to Kendall St. scheduled to begin 5/2/19.
Starting on Thursday, May 5, 2019, Eastbound 29th Ave. will be closed. During business/daytime hours Westbound 29th Ave. will have flaggers that will allow traffic to flow both directions in a one-lane fashion. During evenings/night hours Eastbound will be completely closed and only Westbound traffic will have access on 29th Ave.
The City of Wheat Ridge will begin implementing the improvement plan for W. 29th Avenue approved recently by City Council which will include closure of W. 29th and detours for those driving east and west bound.
The plan calls for improvements to landscaping, adding new curb, gutter and sidewalks, moving of utilities as well as the straightening of the road between Fenton and Kendall.
The plan will be staged over the course of more than 200 days and will include closures and detours. Businesses along W.. 29th will remain open. In addition to the realignment of W. 29th Avenue between Kendall Street and Fenton Street, the City is proposing construction of curb and gutter, detached sidewalks with a landscape / amenity zone or on-street parking with an attached sidewalk, and drainage improvements along this section of West 29th Avenue.
Access to residences and businesses adjacent to the project may be temporarily disrupted during construction.
Check back for updates on the closures planned for W. 29th. This is an ongoing project.
