PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This federal aid project entails resurfacing and overlaying a 12.88 mile section of CO 69 and striping and adding delineators and some signage to maximize driver safety. Other work includes repairing, waterproofing and sealing two bridge decks and performing full depth reclamation of approx. 780 linear feet of pavement between the bridges. Full depth reclamation of asphalt pavement is a process that recycles and rejuvenates the existing asphalt surface, base, and even subgrade, providing an improved underlying foundation for the new asphalt pavement.

TRAVEL IMPACTS

CDOT anticipates low to medium travel impact during the period of construction, including:

Intermittent single lane closures will be in place during daytime hours with alternating north/southbound traffic directed by flagger operations.
Shoulder closures will exist during daytime and overnight hours.
Signs and flagger operations will be in place to safely direct traffic.
No weekend or observed holiday work is expected.
Lane closures and other traffic notices are posted weekly on COTrip.org.


PROJECT LOCATION

The project is located on CO 69 between MP 58.70 and MP 71.58.


PROJECT SCHEDULE

The project will begin on June 25, and is expected to last until late November. Working hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with some night work expected. Project schedules are weather dependent and subject to change.


WHOLE SYSTEM - WHOLE SAFETY
In early 2019, CDOT announced its Whole System — Whole Safety initiative to heighten safety awareness. This initiative takes a systematic, statewide approach to safety combining the benefits of CDOT’s programs that address driving behaviors, our built environment and the organization's operations. The goal is to improve the safety of Colorado’s transportation network by reducing the rate and severity of crashes and improving the safety of all transportation modes. The program has one simple mission—to get everyone home safely.
