Wall and Roadway Repairs Begin this June on Bethoud Pass

Project to expand life of the roadway through critical maintenance


CLEAR CREEK COUNTY—
Beginning in mid-June 2017, crews will begin making wall and roadway repairs along US Highway 40 between mile points 244.37 and 248.09 at Berthoud Pass.

This $2.8 million project consists of wall and expansion joint repairs at several locations on US 40. The maintenance-critical project will repair deteriorating walls that reinforce unstable slopes above the roadways, and expansion joints that allow water to flow through and contribute to the wall deterioration.

"Berthoud Pass is an important economic and tourism route in our state, making this project critical to complete," said Paul Jesaitis, transportation director of CDOT's Denver Metro region. "Our goal is to deliver a project that increases safety and extends the life of the roadway. We're aware that this route is heavily traveled in the summer months, which is why we're committed to keeping one lane of travel open in each direction throughout the project area."

This project will continue through late 2017, as weather permits.

Travel Impacts

Expect intermittent shoulder and lane closures on US 40 between MP 244.37 and 248.09, with at least one lane remaining open in each direction.

Typical working hours are 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, and 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Fridays.
