CDOT to pave CO 82 and the roundabout at Maroon Creek and Castle Creek next Tuesday

May 18, 2016 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - Up to 60 minute delays expected when paving the roundabout

ASPEN/PITKIN COUNTY – Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) crews are scheduled to pave several damaged sections of CO 82 on Tuesday, May 24 starting at 7:00 a.m. In an effort to allow traffic to continue moving through the area during the paving operation, motorists will be put into a head-to-head (two-way) traffic configuration in the eastbound lanes.

TRAFFIC CONFIGURATION:  Cones will be set-up to delineate the flow of traffic into two-way traffic on the eastbound lanes.  There will be NO westbound access to CO 82 from Maroon Creek and Castle Creek Roads.  Motorists wishing to head westbound will need to first head eastbound into Aspen and then get turned around to go westbound. Delays up to 60 minutes could be expected when the paver enters the roundabout.  Crews are expected to be in the roundabout midday. The paving is expected to take all day.

ALTERNATE ROUTE: Commercial truck traffic and RFTA buses will still be able to utilize CO 82 although delays can be expected. All other vehicular traffic is encouraged to use the alternate route – Cemetery Lane to McClain Flats Road.
