95th Street and I-35 Diverging Diamond Interchange

95th Street & I-35 Diverging Diamond Interchange Project

Your commute through the 95th Street and I-35 interchange will soon change as construction begins in mid-February to reconstruct the existing diamond interchange into a new diverging diamond interchange. This interchange reconstruction work is part of the ongoing #jocogateway interchange Phase 2 project.

Here’s what this means for drivers:

• Beginning mid-February through mid-August 2016, weather permitting, all ramps to/from 95th Street to/from I-35 and 95th Street over I-35 will be CLOSED to all through traffic. To view factsheets detailing the construction phasing and schedule for the project, click here /category/fact-sheets/. NOTE: The detour signing will be in place in advance of any project closures.

• Adjacent local road closures will occur throughout construction meaning access to local businesses will change during this time. Access to local businesses will be maintained throughout construction via marked detours. To view the marked detours that will be in place during construction for access to local businesses, as well as for access to 95th Street and I-35, click here: /95th-street-and-i-35-diverging-diamond-interchange/
