State Highway 52 Resurfacing Project Begins Next Tuesday

September 2, 2011 - UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION PROJECT - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - BOULDER COUNTY — On Tuesday, September 6, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will begin a 4.5-mile surface treatment project on State Highway (SH) 52 from SH 119 to US 287.

The project will rotomill and pave SH 52 in asphalt.

“This segment of SH 52 is in poor condition and in great need of a surface treatment,” said CDOT Regional Pavement Manager Gary Strome. “The new asphalt will eliminate the ruts and cracks, making for a smoother and safer driving surface.”

To complete the work, there will be single lane closures on eastbound and westbound SH 52 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays. Work will be performed at night to minimize impacts to traffic. The speed limit will be reduced to 40 MPH and oversize/overweight loads will be restricted during construction hours.

Minor delays are expected throughout the project and alternate routes are advised. CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all road signs and flaggers, and “Slow for the Cone Zone.”  Fines for most infractions that occur in the work zone will be doubled.

Brannan Sand and Gravel is the contractor of this $3.7 million project scheduled to be complete by the end of January 2012, weather permitting.
