Colorado Department of Transportation crews will stripe three short sections in Glenwood Springs in the late morning to early afternoon today. Crews will stripe the dotted extension line from the Grand Avenue bridge to Sixth Street, stopping traffic only long enough to pull the stripe truck through the intersection and set cones to protect the wet paint. Crews will also stripe a short section on the westbound I-70 off-ramp at exit 114; a short section on US 6 eastbound, approaching the north roundabout; and a short section in the north roundabout (and possibly similar striping on the south roundabout). The intent of the roundabout striping is to emphasize proper traffic movements, particularly for those traveling in the right (outside) lanes. A double white line (indicating do not cross over) will replace a skip line, and a sign will also be placed within the next month stating right lane must turn right.There should be minimal delays for the traveling public throughout the midday project.
