The right turn from Osage St southbound to W 48th Ave westbound in Denver CO requires extra care

Last Edited: February 17, 2016 // by TruckerScape, Inc.

In exiting after a delivery to Charles D Jones Co North Denver Branch, our driver found he could not make that right turn without cheating far L off Osage St and swinging wide R due to the concrete lane divider on W 48th Ave. For reference, following are the complete entry and exit directions for Charles D Jones Co North Denver Branch. (For other dock site information, see full listing in Site Search.) Several other companies reside in the same area.

Description: From I-70 WB

Comments: Directions to Site are straightforward. But advise caution on RT from Osage St to W 48th Ave WB on your return to I-70. See Directions from Site.

Step     Instruction

1          Take X273 for Pecos Street approx 0.3 mi to U-turn ramp for W 48th Ave EB.

Remarks: At start of X273 is white-on-green OH sign for Exit 273 to Pecos St. Two-lane X273 ramp runs parallel to I-70 and becomes 3 lanes with the R lane leading to a dedicated U-turn ramp for 48th Ave EB. Over that R lane are white-on-green 48th Ave East sign and black-on-yellow U-turn sign. Get in that R lane and proceed to U-turn ramp.

2          Take U-turn ramp approx 70 ft to W 48th Ave EB.

Remarks: Ramp makes sharp U-turn R onto W 48th Ave EB. Concrete lane divider on W 48th Ave prevents you from turning L onto W 48th Ave WB. U-turn ramp is widened to allow for off-tracking of your trailer.

3          R on W 48th Ave EB approx 100 ft to Osage St.

Remarks: Dedicated LT lane on W 48th Ave EB passes end of concrete lane divider and makes T intersection L with Osage St. On near L corner of intersection is small street sign and a green junction cabinet protected by concrete barriers. On far L corner is Centerpark sign and set back behind it is large Carrier West bldg. Carrier West bldg has 4800 address sign on front facing W 48th Ave.

4          L on Osage St approx 400 ft to Charles D Jones Co North Branch driveway entrance.

Remarks: Entrance is T intersection R. Driveway runs between far side of Carrier West bldg and near side of Charles D Jones bldg. On near R corner of intersection is sign showing 4800 address and suite numbers for Carrier West and RSD companies. Near corner of Charles D Jones bldg has 4900 address and York signs facing driveway. (Both bldgs apparently are multi-tenant.)

5          R on Charles D Jones Co North Branch driveway approx 250 ft to docks and man door.

Description: To I-70 WB and EB

Comments: Advise caution on RT from Osage St to W 48th Ave WB on your return to I-70, due to concrete lane divider on W 48th Ave.

Step     Instruction

1          From Charles D Jones Co North Branch docks, R approx 250 ft to Osage St, then L approx 400 ft to W 48th Ave WB.

Remarks: T intersection with Carrier West bldg and Centerpark sign near L corner. On near R corner are Stop sign, small street sign and green junction cabinet with concrete protective barriers. Approx 10 ft to R on W 48th Ave is start of concrete lane divider. To prepare for RT onto W 48th Ave WB, advise tandems forward and cheat L on Osage St.

2          R on W 48th Ave WB approx 300 ft to entrance of first of 2 traffic circles on Pecos St.

Remarks: Advise wide R turn from L lane of Osage St towards EB lanes of W 48th Ave, then back into WB lane before you get to concrete lane divider. This is to clear R corner of intersection without hanging up on the lane divider.

As you approach first traffic circle, W 48th Ave WB widens into two lanes. Over L lane is white-on-green OH sign for I-70 and Pecos St South. Over R lane is white-on-green OH sign for W 48th Ave West and Pecos St North.

NOTE: Advise use R (outside) lane around first traffic circle. Traffic circle has an apron for off-tracking if you use the L (inside) lane, but using R (outside) lane keeps circle traffic on your sight side.

3          For I-70 WB:

Enter first traffic circle in R (outside) lane and continue in that lane around circle approx 250 ft onto entrance ramp for I-70 West.

Remarks: Pass first R exit from traffic circle for Pecos St North and second R exit for W 48th Ave West. Take third R exit onto I-70 West entrance ramp. Islands in exit/entry intersections for Pecos St North and W 48th Ave West have white-on-green signs. Exit onto I-70 West forms T intersection R with traffic circle, and white-on-green sign is on far L corner.

4          For I-70 EB:

Enter first traffic circle in R (outside) lane and continue in that lane around circle onto Pecos St South, then around second traffic circle onto entrance ramp for I- 70 East for a total distance of approx 0.2 mi.

Remarks: On first circle pass third R exit for I-70 West and take fourth R exit onto Pecos St South. Get in L lane as you drive over I-70 on Pecos St South. (The L lane enters the second traffic circle, while the R lane continues on Pecos St South.) On second circle proceed to first R exit onto entrance ramp for I-70 East.

White-on-green signs at each exit on first and second circles. Red, white and blue sign for I-70 East at exit for Pecos St South off first traffic circle, then red, white and blue I-70 signs painted on L lane of Pecos St South.
