Rotomilling Operations to Cause Delays on I-25 Near Lincoln Avenue and C-470 Tonight

July 27, 2012 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 6 - DOUGLAS COUNTY – Tonight, July 27th and, if needed, on Saturday, July 28th, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will rotomill northbound I-25 from Lincoln Avenue and to just north of C-470 as part of an ongoing resurfacing project that paves approximately one mile of northbound and southbound I-25 in asphalt.

The work will require up to two lanes of northbound I-25 to be closed each night from 8 p.m. to 10 a.m. the following day.

“The contractor recently rotomilled and paved portions of northbound I-25; however, the pavement quality does not meet our standards so the contractor will repave this section of I-25 without any additional cost to the state,” said CDOT Project Engineer Tanisha Alford.  “By repaving now, we can ensure a high quality product that will allow us to get the most out of the new pavement as well as taxpayer funds.”

Major delays are expected 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.

Crews will continue paving operations on northbound I-25 on Sunday night, including the section that will be rotomilled this weekend. Motorists can continue to expect single and double lane closures on northbound I-25 from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Sunday through Thursday through the remainder of the project.

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