CDOT Begins Double Bridge Replacement Project in Logan and Sedgwick Counties

November 16, 2012 - UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION PROJECT - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Work expected to last through March 2013.

LOGAN AND SEDGWICK COUNTIES — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has begun a bridge replacement project for two bridges in northeast Colorado. The bridges are located on US 385 near Julesburg at mile marker (MM) 316.7 (spanning the Peterson Canal) and on US 138 bridge at MM 1.8 (spanning the Pioneer Ditch). Both timber bridges have started to deteriorate and are in poor condition and will be replaced with concrete box culverts.

Work is expected to last through March 2013. In mid-December, a four-day full closure on US 385 is needed to remove the existing bridge and set the new box culvert. Exact details will be forthcoming.

Normal work hours will be from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, with limited night and weekend work. Entries to homes and businesses will remain open, and temporary access points will be arranged during short periods when existing access points are re-built. The speed limit will be reduced to 40 MPH in the construction zone. Motorists are urged to drive Slow for the Cone Zone
