Work Continues on I-76 Resurfacing Project

March 28, 2012 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) continue to make progress on the westbound I-76 resurfacing project between Brush and Sterling, from mile marker (MM) 95 to MM 110.

In addition to the resurfacing, safety improvements are also being made to the westbound lanes of the interstate, including the replacement of guardrails and the addition of bridge rails along the entire project.

“The roadway is going to be much smoother and safer once we are finished,” said Project Engineer Jeff Vickers. “Barring any drastic weather, we are on time to finish by July of this year.”

Work will take place during the hours of 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. There will be some slowing for travelers headed westbound on I-76 through the project, as the interstate will be reduced to one lane 24 hours a day on work days. Motorists are urged to build extra time into their travel through the area. CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all road signs and flaggers, and to drive Slow for the Cone Zone.

APC Southern is the contractor for this $6.2 million project, which was funded by Funding Advancements for Surface Treatment and Economic Recovery (FASTER) legislation, which is dedicated to improving safety and replacing poor bridges.
