Noise Variance Allows Kiewit to Continue Night and Weekend Central 70 Work

KDVR reports, “After a lengthy five-hour hearing, Denver’s Board of Public Health & Environment voted to extend a noise variance request by Kiewit Infrastructure Company for nighttime and weekend work” on the huge Colorado DOT Central 70 Project. “Residents who spoke out against the variance raised concerns about vibrations associated with construction. Denver city ordinance does not directly address vibrations.” The article notes that the board granted Kiewit a 12-month extension, rather than the one it requested to coincide with the scheduled end of construction in 2022.
