About the Project
In addition to widening Tower Road between
E. 80th and E. 103rd avenues, the city is working on a separate project to construct a new on-ramp from Tower Road onto westbound Peña Boulevard; a feature that does not currently exist. Since this area is located outside the city, Commerce City is coordinating with the City and County of Denver and Denver International Airport to complete the project. Denver will handle the widening of Tower Road from the city border at E. 80th Avenue to just south of the Tower/Peña interchange.
Construction on the Peña Boulevard ramp and widening of the Denver portion of Tower Road are scheduled to occur at the same time. Plans are currently being developed with a goal of starting construction in late 2017 or early 2018.
