CDOT begins resurfacing project on I-70 west of Glenwood Springs today

Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

GARFIELD COUNTY, Colorado – The Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor Elam Construction begin a surface treatment project on Interstate 70 west of Glenwood Springs today.

The project will resurface the interstate between mile point 110.1 (about 4 miles west of Glenwood) and mile point 118.6 (excluding a section that had been resurfaced in 2006, from MP 112 to 116.4).

The work includes 2-inch planing and an asphalt overlay of the drive lanes and interchange ramps; bridge approach concrete slab repair/replacement; bridge deck patching; guardrail upgrades; weather sensors; traffic counters near No Name Tunnel; drainage improvements; and pavement markings. CDOT contracted the project to Elam for $2.9 million.

Traffic impacts involve the following through the project’s completion by Aug. 20. (Please note, there may be some Saturday work; paving on mainline I-70 will not begin until early June.)
