Work on the bridges to begin on July 6

DENVER COUNTY—On July 6, 2016, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will begin a bridge rehabilitation project to install fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) at the Sheridan Boulevard and Tennyson Street bridges. The project will install FRP to repair concrete structural members and bridge deck undersides to strengthen the bridge.

Restruction Corporation of Sedalia, Colo., was awarded the $950,000 bid for the project.

FRP is used to rehabilitate and restore the strength of deteriorated structural segments. Benefits of installing FRP to the bridges include improved resiliency, corrosion resistance and less future maintenance required.

"The Fiber Reinforced Polymer will strengthen the bridge and require less future maintenance for the life of the bridge, meaning less traffic impacts and increased safety for motorists," said Paul Jesaitis, CDOT Region 1 transportation director.

Work at the Tennyson Street Bridge is slated to begin on July 6, lasting through the beginning of August 2016. Normal working hours will be frin 8 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. During working hours, Tennyson Street will be a single, one-way lane, with flaggers directing traffic through the construction zone.

Construction work at the Sheridan Boulevard Bridge is projected to begin July 22 and end in September 2016. Working hours at the Sheridan Boulevard Bridge will be from 7:30 p.m. on Mondays through 7 a.m. Saturdays. Sheridan Boulevard will have two lanes closed in each direction, with one lane remaining open during working hours. Some Saturday work can be anticipated throughout the duration of the project at both locations.

CDOT would like to remind motorists to drive Slow for the Cone Zone. Fines may be doubled within the work zone.
