Work begins Monday on four traffic signal replacements

September 30, 2016 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Greeley, Fort Collins, Longmont and Boulder sites; Project completion scheduled for January

The Colorado Department of Transportation will begin construction on four traffic signal replacements on Monday, beginning with work in Fort Collins. 

Working hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Motorists can expect lane closures and lane shifts during the course of the project.

The project includes signal pole replacements at four locations:

  • Greeley: 14th Avenue and 9th Street

  • Fort Collins: US 287, Spring Park Drive and Johnson Drive

  • Longmont: US 287 (Main Street) and 15th Avenue

  • Boulder: CO 7, 38th Street, and Marine Street

Signals will be replaced first in Fort Collins, followed by Greeley, Longmont, and Boulder. Improvements are estimated to take 3 to 4 weeks per location.

Drivers should be prepared for lane shifts and lane closures throughout the project area. Business driveways will maintain access through construction. 

The project is expected to finish in January 2017. Work hours could be extended or additional weekend closures could be scheduled.   

The prime contractor for the $1.2 million project is WL Contractors.
