CDOT replacing culverts on McClure Pass summit

REDSTONE, Colorado – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has begun a project to repair two culverts at the top of McClure Pass on Highway 133, mileposts 42 to 44. The work involves reinforcing two 48-inch corrugated steel pipes with plastic liners and filling any voids with grout. The project will require some work with a crane and other large equipment. In addition, crews will construct new headwalls, improve the guardrail and conduct some erosion control.

The project was contracted to American West for $373,000 and will be completed by Nov. 2, weather permitting.

Motorists can anticipate single-lane, alternating traffic with delays of about five minutes on weekdays and some weekends, during daylight hours.

Traffic control crews will make every effort to coordinate with the nearby rockfall project to avoid excessive stops to motorists; however this is not always possible and motorists should plan for additional delays.
