PARACHUTE, Colorado – The Colorado Department of Transportation and its contractor, SEMA Construction, begin work today on phase 2 of the new west Parachute interchange on I-70 at milepost 72.

So far, crews have built new on- and off-ramps and roundabouts on the north and south sides of the existing overpass bridge on Highway 6. They also installed new guardrail and wildlife fencing, and a new approach slab to the east side of the bridge.

In phase 2, crews will pour concrete for the roundabouts and make other improvements to the west side of the bridge.

Phase 3, which begins in mid-October, will include final asphalt paving. The project is slated to be complete by Oct. 31.

Delays can be expected during working hours as equipment and crews move in and out of the work zone. During non-working hours, timed light signals will direct traffic using Highway 6.
