CDOT Refreshes/Replaces Highway Markings on SH 82, Aspen to Glenwood, and on I-70 from Glenwood to Vail Pass

May 4, 2012 - MOBILE STRIPING OPERATIONS - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - GARFIELD, EAGLE, PITKIN COUNTIES – Colorado Department of Transportation Traffic and Safety divisions statewide have begun striping operations statewide, refreshing or replacing traffic markings on state highways as they do each spring.

One major striping endeavor underway right now includes the SH 82 and I-70 corridors in three counties. CDOT has contracted Streamline Markings for this project for $597,500.

The project, which is expected to wrap up in June, involves work at the following locations:

  • SH 82, Glenwood Springs to Aspen: Existing striping on a section in Glenwood Springs—from 7th Street to Hyland Park—will be ground down and restriped later in May. (Grinding is done every several years or so to create a fresh surface, since the older repainted—and raised—markings can get broken up by snow plows in the winter.) To date, epoxy striping on the SH 82 corridor has been completed.
  • I-70, East Rifle (Mile Point 90) to Eagle/Summit County Line (MP 190): Through mid-May, striping will be done from MP 126, just east of Hanging Lake Tunnel, to MP 190, including frontage roads and ramps. Then, crews will grind and restripe markings on the section from MP 90 to MP 116 (at Glenwood Springs exit).

Crews greatly appreciate motorists’ patience and safe driving during these mobile operations. Motorists are urged to avoid driving near the coned areas to avoid any paint on vehicles. Thank you for going Slow for the Cone Zone!
