I-76 Resurfacing Project Finishes Ahead of Schedule

May 23, 2012 - CONSTRUCTION PROJECT UPDATE - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Project also finished on budget.

LOGAN, MORGAN, AND WASHINGTON COUNTIES — Today, crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) have successfully finished the westbound I-76 resurfacing project between Brush and Sterling, from mile marker (MM) 95 to MM 110, more than a month ahead of schedule. Thanks to cooperative weather and the hard work of crews, the resurfacing and safety improvements made to the westbound lanes of the interstate are now complete, including the replacement of guardrails and the addition of bridge rails along the entire project.

“Our guys worked exceptionally hard to keep the project moving ahead of schedule. This time of year, you never know when the weather may turn bad, so they wanted to be as prepared as possible for conditions to change,” said Project Engineer Jeff Vickers. “We thank motorists for their patience during construction and hope they enjoy driving on the new roadway.”

APC Southern was 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.
