I-70: US 6 to Georgetown Resurfacing project now complete

September 14, 2017 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Traffic is back in its normal configuration on this stretch of I-70

CLEAR CREEK COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Transportation is pleased to announce the completion of the I-70: US 6 to Georgetown Resurfacing project in Clear Creek County. Now that paving operations are complete, motorists will experience a smoother surface and a safer driving experience with new striping paint and guardrail improvements.   

“Although construction projects may be a temporary nuisance to drivers, this was a very important project for CDOT as traffic volumes on I-70 continue to increase,” said Paul Jesaitis, CDOT Region 1 transportation director. “This project promotes the longevity and safety of this vital highway.”

The I-70: US 6 to Georgetown Resurfacing project started in September 2016, went through a winter shut down in October and restarted in June 2017. APC Construction was the prime contractor for this $7 million project.

Work along this 12 mile stretch of east and westbound I-70 included: milling, paving, signing and striping, guardrail improvements, culvert cleaning, and erosion control operations. Crews also worked on nine on and off-ramps in this area. 

CDOT, APC Construction, and Clear Creek County would like to thank motorists for their patience during this project.
