Other Road Construction Work
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.

Northbound Chambers Road closure
Northbound Chambers Road will be closed north of Sixth Avenue to north of 7th Place until April 19 so that Xcel Energy can finish installation of a new gas main. Detours are in place. Alternate routes are suggested.

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.

Picadilly Road delays
From April 5 through 9, Picadilly Road will have multiple one-lane two-way traffic zones with flaggers, from Green Valley Ranch Boulevard south for about a mile. Delays should be expected.

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
