Highway striping under way on Highway 82, I-70

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – The Colorado Department of Transportation has started repainting roadway stripes on Highway 82 and Interstate 70 in Garfield, Eagle and Pitkin counties. CDOT contracted the job to Streamline Markings for $597,500.

The project, expected to wrap up in June, involves work at the following locations:

Highway 82, Glenwood Springs to Aspen: Existing striping in Glenwood Springs from Seventh to Hyland Park Drive will be ground down and restriped later in May.

Grinding is done every several years or so to create a fresh surface, since the older repainted, raised markings can get broken up by snow plows in the winter.

Other epoxy striping on the Highway 82 corridor has been completed.

I-70, East Rifle to the Eagle-Summit county line: Through mid-May, striping will be done from mile 126, just east of Hanging Lake Tunnel, to mile 190, including frontage roads and ramps. Then, crews will grind and restripe markings on the section from mile 90 at Rifle to mile 116 at Glenwood Springs.
