Intersection Improvements to Begin Tomorrow on State Highway 402 Near Loveland

March 14, 2013 - UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION PROJECT - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Work scheduled for completion by May 2013.

LARIMER COUNTY — Tomorrow, Friday, March 15, 2013, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will begin an intersection improvements project on State Highway (SH) 402 near Loveland at the intersection of Heron Drive from mile marker (MM) 2.9 to MM 3.5. All work for the project is expected to be complete by mid-May 2013.

“This project will not only improve the safety of the intersection, but will also improve future drainage,” said Project Engineer Gray Currier.

As part of the work, crews will build a left-turn lane for eastbound traffic at the Paradise Acres subdivision on Heron Drive, and SH 402 will be widened to the south at this location to provide a continuous eastbound through-lane and paved shoulder. The work will include asphalt resurfacing, signing, striping, and relocation of some utility and irrigation lines.

During construction, crews will be working from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and will also be working 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on occasion. Motorists can expect some delays of up to 10 minutes during work hours, as well as lane closures. The speed limit will be reduced to 40 MPH, and motorists are urged to drive Slow for the Cone Zone!

Connell Resources is the contractor for this $465,000 project.
