US 34 Bypass Resurfacing Begins Tomorrow in Greeley

June 26, 2012 - UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION PROJECT - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Project expected to last through November 2012.

WELD COUNTY — Beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, June 27, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will be resurfacing the US 34 bypass east of US 85 in Greeley. Crews will resurface a two mile stretch of the highway from 1st Avenue to County Road (CR) 45 in order to increase the quality and smoothness of the roadway. This project will be adjacent, but not related, to the existing bypass project on US 85 in Greeley. Although the projects are separate, they may impact each other.

This week, motorists will experience single lane closures in both directions of US 34 near 1st Avenue, as crews will begin grading the roadway and preparing for upcoming paving operations. Work is scheduled to take place on the project between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday each week. Entries to homes and businesses will remain open during construction, and temporary access points will be arranged when necessary. Motorists should expect some delays in the area as the speed limit will be reduced to 40 MPH through the work zone during the first phase of the project. CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all road signs and flaggers, and to drive Slow for the Cone Zone.

This $3.7 million project is contracted to Castle Rock Construction Company and is scheduled for completion in November 2012.
