Work will begin at mile point (MP) 98 and extends approximately six miles to MP 104. The project is scheduled to be complete by mid-October. Castle Rock Construction Company of Centennial, Colorado, will perform as prime contractor on this $5.3 million project. The work will result in a smoother ride for travelers and a more durable road texture on the highway.


During paving operations, travel will be restricted to one lane with motorists encountering up to 30-minute wait times as a pilot car operation will be used to alternate traffic through the area.

Construction work hours will run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. If the need arises, the schedule may change to Monday through Saturday.

Speeds will be reduced to 40 mph through the work zone. There will be a 10-foot width restriction in place at all times. Travelers should expect delays and should plan extra time in order to navigate the cone zone.
