Westbound Arapahoe Ave. to reopen between Folsom and 15th streets on Saturday, Aug. 17
On Saturday, Aug. 17, westbound Arapahoe Avenue is scheduled to reopen, providing traffic flow in both directions between Folsom and 15th streets. On Monday, Aug. 19, the JUMP bus route is scheduled to return to Arapahoe Avenue (in both directions), with temporary bus stop closures.
This second phase of construction, with both directions of traffic open, will remain in effect through mid-May 2014. During off-peak daytime hours (8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.), sections of Arapahoe Avenue will be narrowed to one lane of alternating traffic.
