TRAFFIC ADVISORY FROM METRO WASTEWATER RECLAMATION DISTRICT
Traffic Delays Expected: Parker Road between I-225 and Dartmouth Avenue starting April 8
Aurora, CO – As part of ongoing Metro Wastewater Reclamation District system maintenance, work to rehabilitate segments of pipe will require short-term lane shifts and partial lane closures in western Aurora.
Work is scheduled to begin on the evening of Friday, April 8, and delays should be expected for 2-3 weeks along Parker Road in both directions (between 1-225 and Dartmouth Avenue):
· All local intersections and exit/entrance ramps will remain open.
· RTD’s Nine Mile Station and all local neighborhoods and businesses will remain accessible to vehicles and pedestrians.
· Short-term lane shifts and partial lane closures will be posted.
Given high traffic volume in this area, crews will work around the clock to minimize traffic impacts. However, drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes.
All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
The Metro District is committed to completing this routine maintenance project safely, efficiently, and with minimal disturbance to local businesses, residents, and visitors. The public’s patience and cooperation during construction is greatly appreciated.
