Other Road Construction Work

Fitzsimons-Peoria Stormwater Outfall Project
Work is being done to upgrade the stormwater conveyance capacity in the Fitzsimons-Peoria corridor to meet current city standards. When completed, the project will provide improved flood protection to about 230 residents and 40 businesses. Visit Fitz-Peoria.org for details.

Update: Ongoing through February both directions of Peoria between 17th Avenue and Colfax Avenue will have a new traffic pattern. Please use alternate routes.

Inspiration Drive closed temporarily to trucks over 40 feet in length

From Sept. 18 until roughly November, Inspiration Drive in both directions between Inspiration Lane and Pine Drive will have a traffic diversion that requires slower speeds. Please use caution. Additionally, it will be closed to trucks over 40 feet in length. Trucks over 40 feet should use the signed detour using Pine Drive, Main Street, Parker Road, Tomahawk Road, Inspiration Drive, and Gartrell Road. Hudick Excavating will be reconstructing and improving the road as part of the Inspiration development. 

Smith Road work 
Smith Road from Picadilly Road to Smith Way will completely close from Oct. 20 until late February for Aurora Water’s First Creek Interceptor project. A detour will be in place.

Gun Club Road closure for pipe installation
From Oct. 19 to Nov. 19, Gun Club Road between Colfax Avenue and Sixth Parkway will be closed while Aurora Water installs a new 60-inch pipe. Signed detours will direct drivers onto Sixth Avenue, Powhaton Road and Colfax Avenue. Please use caution. Alternate routes are suggested. 

Chambers Road lane reduction
Dates will be announced soon on work on Chambers Road just north of Sixth Avenue that will result in a reduction of lanes from three to two, with a traffic diversion. The southbound Chambers Road left turn lane to eastbound Sixth Avenue will be closed, and the eastbound Sixth Avenue left turn lane to northbound Chambers Road will be reduced capacity so Xcel Energy can install a large capacity gas line. Alternate routes are advised.

Inspiration Drive closure for reconstruction and improvements
Until mid-October, Inspiration Drive will be closed in both directions between Inspiration Lane and Gartrell Road for reconstruction and improvements related to neighborhood development. Please use the signed detour using both Inspiration Lane and Gartrell Road.

Smith Road near Picadilly

Beginning Sept. 14, alternate routes are encouraged on Smith Road from Picadilly Road to Smith Way as it will be at 50% capacity with an eastbound lane diversion while Xcel Energy completes some work. On Sept. 21, it will be completely closed for Aurora Water’s First Creek Interceptor project with a detour in place. 

Havana and Sixth lane closures
From July 24 for 130 days, the intersection at Havana and Sixth Avenue will have multiple lane closures on weekends, including restricted left turns from northbound Havana Street to westbound Sixth Avenue, for Aurora Water to renew a 30-inch water line.



Major Road Projects in East Aurora
Significant work is underway in several areas to improve mobility on the east side of Aurora. Visit this story map to learn more.

Quincy Avenue/Gun Club Road Intersection Improvements
Construction began October 2019 on the improvement project at Quincy Avenue and Gun Club Road.

Temporary lane closures will occur in two phases from Oct. 15 through Oct. 19.

From 7 p.m. Oct. 15 to 9 a.m. Oct. 16, Quincy Avenue will be closed in both directions from Gun Club Road west to the E-470 ramp. Quincy Avenue east of Gun Club Road will remain open to traffic during this phase. See detour map for details.

From 9 a.m. Oct. 16 to 5:30 a.m. Oct. 19, Quincy Avenue will be closed in both directions east of Gun Club Road to Harvest Road. Quincy Avenue west of Gun Club Road will remain open to traffic during this phase. See detour map for details.

The closures are a necessary effort to accomplish five weeks of work, in just a few short days while the local schools are on break. This work will make the travel experience in the intersection much more efficient through the winter months.
