US 85 over C-470 Bridge
Give yourself extra time to drive along C-470 or US 85 (Santa Fe Drive) in the construction zone next week. Several detours will be in place around the interchange of C-470 and US 85 from 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 13, to 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 14.
These closures are necessary for driver and worker safety during overhead bridge work. During these closures, crews will pour the concrete bridge surface to form a portion of a new US 85 bridge over C-470.
Please take an alternate route or plan extra time. If weather conditions do not allow this work to take place as originally scheduled, crews will conduct this work at a later date.
C-470 through access will be maintained at US 85 using the off-ramps and on-ramps.
Detour information for C-470 and US 85 travelers can be found here.
Please watch for crews, heed the speed limit, and avoid distracted driving in the work zone.
