Expect delays as resurfacing project begins on SH 14 From I-25 to WCR 23

July 2, 2015 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - WELD COUNTY — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will begin work on Monday, July 6, to resurface an 8-mile segment of State Highway (SH) 14 between Interstate 25 and County Road (CR) 23 east of Fort Collins.

According to CDOT Project Engineer Ben Rowles, “This project is critical to maintaining the integrity of the road over the long term.” Work will consist of milling the existing asphalt and repaving the surface with concrete to replace deteriorating pavement.

Motorists can expect one alternating lane of traffic for up to 2 miles at a time. This traffic configuration will be managed by traffic signals, and motorists can expect stops of up to 15 minutes through the duration of the project which is scheduled to be complete by the end of November. There is a 10-foot width restriction and a 75-foot length restriction in place for oversized vehicles. The recommended detour route for oversized vehicles is US 34.

Throughout the project, there will be limited access to north and south county roads intersecting with SH 14 between I-25 and CR 23, with detours in place.

The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph for both the safety of the traveling public and construction crews working along the highway. Fines may be doubled for speed violations through the construction zone.
