Bridge repairs begin next week on State Highway 119 west of I-25

January 24, 2014 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Crews delivering materials to repair bridges damaged during the flood.

BOULDER AND WELD COUNTIES — Beginning next week, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will be repairing two bridges on State Highway (SH) 119 west of the I-25 intersection. The work will take place in the westbound lanes of SH 119 between mile marker (MM) 57 and MM 59, and also between MM 61 and MM 63.

During the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, crews will be delivering materials next week to help repair bridges that were damaged during the September 2013 flood. Crews will be working on the westbound shoulders of the highway, and flaggers will be present to help delivery crews place rip rap near the damaged bridges.

Motorists are urged to build 10 minutes of extra travel time into their commutes, but crews will try to minimize impacts during the morning and evening rush hours. There will be a speed reduction in both work zones, and motorists should be sure to drive Slow for the Cone Zone!

The contractor for these repairs is Lawrence Construction, and work is scheduled to last through April 2014.
