Crews to Close County Road 76 at US 85 in Eaton July 7-10

US 85 traffic will be unaffected.

From 9 a.m. Friday, July 7 through 9 a.m. Monday, July 10, CDOT will close Weld County Road 76 (10th Street) east of US Highway 85 to improve the intersection. This work is part of a project to improve US 85 from Eaton to Ault.

The west side of County Road 76 will remain open through the weekend, and motorists traveling northbound and southbound on US 85 will not be affected.

Those who are impacted by the weekend closure will be detoured around the intersection. Suggested routes include using County Road 74 to the south, or Colorado Highway 14 to the north of the closure.

"The weekend closures are designed to impact the public as minimally as possible," said Project Engineer Anthony Anderson. "This marks an important phase of the project, as we will be upgrading the roadway near one of the town's designated railroad crossings."

Other Traffic Impacts

  • A 10-foot width restriction is in place.
  • Speeds will be reduced to 25 mph in the active work zone.
  • Please plan additional travel time for the detour.
