Full Closure Strategic Analysis

Full closures of roadways are becoming an increasingly considered and utilized strategy to assist in completing maintenance and construction efforts. Accordingly, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has identified a need for additional strategic consideration of full roadway closures. This study will review current full closure practices and develop an approach to judging their merits. Several potential freeway and arterial full closure scenarios will be analyzed to evaluate the range of full closure impacts. Project deliverables include a decision tool to assist CDOT with future full roadway closures.
