Paving starts Monday between Dotsero and Gypsum

DOTSERO, Colorado – Beginning Monday, crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will start a paving project on nine miles of I-70 from Dotsero to Gypsum.

Safety improvements will also be made, including guardrail replacements and extensions, bridge rail replacements on nine bridges, and bridge deck repairs on one bridge.

Work on this project is expected to finish in August. Marietta Materials is the contractor for this $8.7 million project.

Crews will resurface a noticeably cracked surface on I-70, and will make safety improvements to bring the stretch of highway up to existing safety standards.

Once construction is under way, motorists will experience delays and are advised to build extra travel time into their schedules.

Crews will work from from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 7 a.m. to noon Fridays. Speed limits will be reduced in the work zone.

CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all road signs and flaggers, and to drive slow for the Cone Zone.
