State Highway 79 Realignment

The Town of Bennett is working closely with the Colorado Department of Transportation and Adams County on the preferred alternative for the realignment of SH 79 and the grade separated crossing at the UPRR east of town. 

Below you will find the documents that were presented at a public input meeting on February 8, 2017. You will find a summary of information from the SH 79 and Kiowa-Bennett Corridor PEL Study, the corridor project phasing timeline, railroad crossing renderings, and a copy of the PEL recommended alternative. 

If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact Linda Wilson at
