Chip Seal Resurfacing on Highway 94

July 28, 2011 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - EL PASO COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is chip sealing five miles of State Highway 94 in the Rush area next week.

On Wednesday, August 3, and Thursday, August 4, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., a pilot car and flaggers will alternate eastbound and westbound traffic, beginning about three miles west of Rush and continuing east to the El Paso/Lincoln county line.  Delays up to 15 minutes can be expected.

Upon completion of the work, sweepers will be operating on the highway each evening, cleaning any of the remaining small, loose rocks prevalent in chip seal resurfacing areas.

Chip sealing is a preventative maintenance operation, extending a highway’s effective surface life three to five years.

Motorists are reminded to please Slow for the Cone Zone, stay alert and pay attention to and obey all work zone/advisory signs and flaggers.
