I-70 Resurfacing Work from Eagle to Edwards Continues

May 6, 2013 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - Motorists asked to slow down due to uneven road conditions.

EAGLE COUNTY — Work continues on the resurfacing project on Interstate I-70 between mile markers (MM) 147 and MM 164 (from Eagle to Edwards).  Paving operations will begin on Monday, May 6 and will continue daily through mid-June. The project is currently on schedule and will be completed by August 2013.

Due to the recent spring moisture and changing temperatures, drivers through this work zone may also experience uneven road conditions, especially on bridge decks.  Crews are working to address these conditions and as a result have reduced speed limits to 55 MPH in several areas as well as 40 MPH in the construction zone.  Traffic fines through this work zone have been doubled. CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all road signs and flaggers, and to drive Slow for the Cone Zone.

Work is scheduled on the project from Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through June 20, with allowance for eastbound commuter traffic from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. daily. Allowances will be made for westbound commuter traffic from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily and between 12 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Fridays. Night work may be planned after June 20 but holiday and weekend work will be limited.
