Denver Crews Prepare For I-25 Closures During Presidential Debate
" DENVER (CBS4) – During next week’s presidential debate at the University of Denver, a section of Interstate 25 and several side streets surrounding the campus will be closed.

A five-mile stretch of I-25 from Santa Fe to Hampden will be closed from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, October 3. The debate is at the Magness Arena on the DU campus at 7 p.m.

The City of Denver Transportation Management Center has been working and preparing for the five hour closure during the evening commute, a peak travel time on the interstate.

“This event is a little unusual,” said Director of Traffic Operations Matthew Wager. “We can see a fairly good representation of traffic city-wide. There are very few places in the city where we’re not monitoring traffic.”

An estimated 50,000 vehicles that use that stretch of I-25 during that time frame will be directed onto side streets.

“Drivers can expect some delays along the entire detour route,” said Wager.

One method to keep traffic moving along Santa Fe and Hampden, two main roads where traffic will be diverted during the closure, is to extend the timing on stop lights to allow vehicles to keep moving "
