24/7 lane closures on US 85 this weekend

Expect delays along US 85 in Highlands Ranch from 10 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, to 5 a.m. Monday, Feb. 27

Posted on February 23, 2023 2023News and EventsTransportation


Please plan ahead if you plan to drive US 85 (Santa Fe Drive) this weekend.

One lane in each direction of US 85 (Santa Fe Drive) will be closed between Norwood Drive and Blakeland Drive in Highlands Ranch from 10 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, until 5 a.m. Monday, Feb. 27. One lane will remain open in each direction.

These lane closures will allow crews to safely replace a portion of the Union Pacific Railroad over US 85. This extended closure will eliminate the need for more than 30 overnight closures as part of the corridor improvements being made by Douglas County and its partners during the US 85 widening and reconstruction project from Highlands Ranch Parkway to north of C-470.

Please give yourself extra time and pay attention to posted speed limits and signage.

If weather conditions do not allow this work to take place as originally scheduled, crews will conduct this work at a later date.

Expect daytime single lane closures throughout the week from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. as needed. Please watch for crews, heed the speed limit, and avoid distracted driving in the work zone.
