Jan. 19 Open House to Kick Off US Highway 287 Reconstruction through Lamar

LAMAR—The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the City of Lamar are hosting an open house at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 19, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. to kick off the reconstruction of US Highway 287 through the City of Lamar. The meeting will be held at the Cultural Events Center, 102 East Parmenter, in Lamar.

Anyone interested in the project should stop in to learn about the work and meet the project contractor, American Civil Constructors (ACC Mountain West). ACC Mountain West will provide an overview of the work, present the initial project schedule and outline efforts for proactive communication with local businesses, residents and visitors to the region.

ACC Mountain West was hired by CDOT to replace and improve the waterline, and reconstruct the road on US 287 within the City of Lamar—a project footprint a little less than one mile. Improvements will include waterline, some utilities, curb, gutter and concrete paving.

The project, slated to kick off in late January, will encompass two construction seasons, with a winter shutdown from November 2017 to March 2018.

Project team members will be available to answer questions about the reconstruction, and informational boards will provide an overview of the schedule.
