Work on CO 60 in Johnstown and Milliken begins Monday

Open house slated for May 8 so public can ask questions of the project team.

JOHNSTOWN & MILLIKEN—The Colorado Highway (CO) 60 Resurfacing project team will host an open house from 5-7 p.m. on Monday, May 8, at the Johnstown Community Center, 101 Charlotte St. The public is encouraged to attend the event to hear about the project's progress and meet with representatives of the construction project management team.

Beginning Monday, May 1, crews will begin milling and paving the highway. Detours will alternate between one lane of eastbound traffic, then one lane of westbound traffic on CO 60 from I-25 to CO 257. Speed limit-reduction and detour signs will be posted to safely guide motorists through the construction zone.

The scope of work also includes sidewalk and curb ramp improvements in Johnstown and Milliken. The work is expected to be complete by October.

"We are excited that this project will not only improve the road quality of the highway, but also enhance the mobility of people biking and walking in the towns of Milliken and Johnstown," said Abra Geissler, CDOT project engineer. "It really is a win-win for the two towns."

Having recognized this stretch of the highway as one of the most heavily traveled in the area, CDOT has partnered with the towns of Milliken, Johnstown and other local entities to make the road surface both smoother and safer for commuters, tourists and commercial vehicles.

Normal project working hours will be 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Limited night and weekend work can be expected.
