Asphalt Paving Project Begins Tonight on I-25 Near Lincoln Avenue

June 10, 2012 - NEW CONSTRUCTION PROJECT - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 6 - DOUGLAS COUNTY – Tonight, June 10, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will begin a resurfacing project on I-25 from Lincoln Avenue north to C-470. The project will rotomill and pave approximately one mile of I-25 in asphalt.

“This section of I-25, which carries approximately 157,000 vehicles a day, was last paved in 2000 and is in poor condition,” said CDOT Project Engineer Tanisha Alford. “In recent years, CDOT crews have been patching, sealing cracks and performing other maintenance activities to maintain a smooth driving surface. This project will reduce the amount of maintenance needed while greatly improving the condition of the roadway.”

To complete the work, crews will conduct drainage work, rotomilling and paving activities on southbound I-25 first, which will continue into late June or early July 2012. Once the southbound I-25 work is complete, crews will move to northbound I-25 and conduct the same activities.

Throughout the project, motorists can expect various single lane closures on northbound and/or southbound I-25 Sunday through Thursday starting at 8 p.m. each night with a second lane closing at 11 p.m.  All lanes will reopen by 5:30 a.m each day.

Major delays are possible and alternate routes are strongly advised.  CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all construction signs and flaggers and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.” Most fines for infractions that occur in the work zone will be doubled.

Aggregate Industries is the contractor for this $1.1 million project that will be completed by the end of July 2012.
