Resurfacing Project Resumes on I-70 Between Holly Street and Quebec Street

May 2, 2012 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 6 - DENVER – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has resumed a resurfacing and bridge deck repair project on I-70 between Holly Street and Quebec Street following a winter shutdown that began in November 2011.

The project rotomills and resurfaces approximately one mile of I-70 in asphalt and repairs the bridge decks on I-70 over Monaco Street, Holly Street, Quebec Street and the Union Pacific Railroad.

“We completed the bridge deck repairs on eastbound I-70 prior to the winter shutdown,” said CDOT Project Engineer Kurt Kionka.  “We are now completing the bridge deck repairs on westbound I-70 and will then pave the highway in both directions.”

To complete the work, there will be single lane closures Sunday through Thursday starting at 9 p.m. with a second lane closing at 10 p.m. each night.  Various single lane closures are also expected from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night on Quebec Street, Holly Street and Monaco Street while the bridge deck work is underway. Delays are possible throughout the project and alternate routes are advised. CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all construction signs and flaggers and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”  Fines for most infractions that occur in the work zone will be doubled.

Martin Marietta Materials, formerly known as LaFarge North America, Inc. is the contractor for this $4.8 million, which is scheduled to be complete by the end of August 2012.
