CDOT to do Grand Avenue work next week

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” Road repairs to Grand Avenue will cause delays next week.

“We will be rotomilling and paving select areas of Grand Avenue in order to repair areas that are prone to potholes,” said Colorado Department of Transportation maintenance supervisor D’Wayne Gaymon, in a news release. “We know the project will cause some delays, but it is work we need to conduct in order to keep the roadway in good condition.”

CDOT maintenance crews will conduct rotomilling and paving activities Monday through Thursday. Work will occur on Grand Avenue from exit 116 off of Interstate 70 to the Grand Avenue bridge and between 19th Street and 23rd Street.

During the project, motorists can expect various single lane closures from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in both directions of Highway 82 between I-70 and the Grand Avenue bridge.

Crews will not conduct work in the up-valley lanes between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and on down-valley lanes from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. In addition, the left lane of westbound Grand Avenue between 19th Street and 23rd Street will be closed from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. for paving.

Throughout the week, delays are expected and alternate routes such as Midland Avenue are strongly recommended.

CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all traffic signs and flaggers and to “Slow for the Cone Zone,” the news release says.

All work should be complete by 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, weather permitting.
