C-470 Resurfacing Project to Begin Sunday Night

May 20, 2016 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Work provides smoother driving surface and increased wildlife safety

Jefferson County—On Sunday, May 22, CDOT will begin an $8.2 million project to resurface C-470 from south of the I-70 and C-470 interchange to exit 10 at Ken Caryl Avenue in Jefferson County. Work is scheduled for completion in October 2016.

Motorists can expect single lane closures Sundays through Thursdays from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., with speeds reduced to 55 mph in the construction zone. Some highway exit and entrance ramps will also be impacted overnight.

This is an infrastructure maintenance project that includes wildlife safety improvements.The project will span approximately 6.6 miles of C-470.  The resurfacing is designed to restore the current pavement, add an overlay of asphalt, repair several bridge joints and apply new pavement markings along the length of the project.  Additionally, 15 deer ramps and over 7,800 linear feet of new fencing will be installed to keep wildlife from entering the highway.

"We're excited to begin a project that not only extends the life of the highway, but also upgrades the corridor with more modern wildlife safety features," said Paul Jesaitis, CDOT Region 1 transportation director. "We want to make sure the highway is safe and durable for years to come, while doing so with minimal impact on both commuters and wildlife."

APC Construction Company of Golden was awarded this project by CDOT.
