Other Road Construction Work

Airport Boulevard lane closure

The right northbound lane of Airport Boulevard before 10th Avenue will be closed overnight tonight, May 5, due to a 30-foot-long section of road that has dropped and is a possible hazardous condition. Use caution when traveling through the area or use an alternate route.

56th Avenue reconstruction
Beginning early May, 56th Avenue between E-470 and Jackson Gap Street will be closed for the installation of a large culvert and complete reconstruction of 56th Avenue to mitigate potential flooding in the area. Detour includes Tower Road, Pena Boulevard, and Jackson Gap Street/Way. From 56th Avenue, expect detours to DIA and associated businesses south of DIA on Jackson Gap Way.

Airport Road Lane reductions
Northbound Airport Boulevard north of Colfax through mid-April will continue to experience delays due to two of three lanes closed for concrete restoration. Alternate routes are advised.

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 for details.

Through April, northbound Peoria is closed from 13th Avenue to Colfax Avenue. Please use multiple signed detours for northbound Peoria from Sixth Avenue to Colfax Avenue. 

Chambers Road lane reduction
Through mid-April, 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.

Chambers at Sixth Avenue lane closures
Through early June, multiple lane closures are scheduled on Chambers Road in both directions north and south of Sixth Avenue for a pipeline installation. Please use caution in this area.

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 (updated Feb. 17, 2021).

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

In conjunction with the E470 ramp changes, the Quincy/Gun Club Project made the following changes in December:
Northbound traffic coming onto the project from the south will be shifted into the final configuration. This will remove the current crossovers and should ease travel coming into the project limits.
West of the Quincy/Gun Club intersection, westbound Quincy Avenue traffic will be shifted north of the center median into its final alignment. Quincy Avenue will now function in its final configuration through the winter.
Factors contributing to the switch will include weather and the E-470 southbound off-ramp traffic signal going operational.
As dates are confirmed, the project message boards throughout the site will be updated to advise the traveling public.

More information can be found on the project website or by calling 800.394.7020 or
