After this week, delays on SH 93 should be much less

October 14, 2014 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Crews should finish paving west two lanes to end lane closures for project

BOULDER COUNTY — This should be the last week of substantial delays on SH93 from SH 170 to SH 128 south of Boulder as crews wrap up the final paving on the west two lanes.

Once these two lanes are completed, traffic will be shifted onto the new lanes and concrete barriers will be installed adjacent to the northbound traffic, so that the east half of the highway can be constructed behind the barriers. This configuration will provide two lanes of travel through the entire project and eliminate the need for further lane closures.  However, occasional traffic stops will be required to allow construction equipment into and out of the work zone.

For this week, construction will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. through Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.

The full project will add shoulders to SH 93 and build a pedestrian underpass for the Community Ditch Trail under the highway.

The project will create more room between motorists and cyclists riding along the highway, will reduce the potential for collisions by providing an underpass for the safety of trail users, and will create a smoother and safer highway surface for all who travel on SH 93.
