CDOT Delivers Early: Bridge Rehab Complete on Eastbound I-70 at 32nd Avenue

November 25, 2014 - Metro Denver Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - DENVER – On Thursday, Nov. 20, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) mobilized an emergency bridge rehabilitation on eastbound I-70 at 32nd Avenue, following several recent smaller emergency repairs. CDOT announces expected completion by 7 p.m. today, a day ahead of schedule.

“We consider this an extraordinary effort by our employees and contractor. They weathered cold temperatures and a 24-hour work schedule to get this roadway opened early for the public,” said Josh Laipply, CDOT Chief Engineer. “This is what it means to be a CDOT employee—working as a team and often like a family to out-perform in the best interest of those we serve.”

CDOT maintenance crews began bridge rehab work early on Thursday, Nov. 20 to immediately address the bridge and maintain safe travel for motorists as contractor, ABCO, mobilized to the project site. This bridge was originally part of a larger $1.9 million bridge rehab project that was slated to begin in spring of 2015. The westbound I-70 at 32nd Avenue bridge structure rehab time frame is still being determined, but slated to occur this year weather depending.
