The Colorado Department of Transportation is cleaning out a culvert under Manitou Avenue (U.S. 24 Business), requiring road and ramp closures.
All lanes of eastbound Manitou Avenue are closed under U.S. 24. Traffic can detour via Ridge Road. The eastbound off-ramp from U.S. 24 also is closed. Access to Manitou/Colorado Avenue is available from 26th Street.
Westbound Manitou Avenue also is closed under U.S. 24, with traffic detoured to westbound U.S. 24 and to Ridge Road. Traffic on westbound U.S. 24 still can access westbound Manitou Avenue via the off-ramp.
CDOT is cleaning out the culvert because it is plugged up, forcing water and debris down the street.
The closures is expected to remain in place through tomorrow.
