Summit Boulevard curb ramp construction starts Monday

April 27, 2018 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - Overnight paving follows concrete curb ramp repairs

SUMMIT COUNTYStarting on Monday, motorists should expect daytime single-lane closures on Colorado Highway 9 (Summit Boulevard) between Interstate 70 and Main Street for concrete curb ramp work. Lane closures are limited to ¼-mile from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday with shorter hours on Fridays. All lanes will be open for weekends and holidays.

Curb ramp work is the first phase of a project to resurface a portion of Summit Boulevard in the Town of Frisco this summer. Signed pedestrian detours will be provided for temporary ramp and sidewalk closures. Ramp work will take approximately one week at each location. Business access will remain open. All work is weather-dependent and the schedule is subject to change.


The Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor partner, A & S Construction, will rehabilitate approximately one mile of CO 9 (Summit Boulevard) this summer. Crews will reconstruct concrete curb ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements from April to June.

In June, the contractor will make repairs to the roundabout at the westbound I-70 ramps and the bridge over I-70. Bridge deck paving and roundabout work will require a four-day full closure of Summit Boulevard between the eastbound and westbound I-70 ramps. All ramps will remain open during the full closure and a signed detour will be provided. The full closure dates will be posted at least one week in advance on message boards along the corridor and on the project website.

Once temperatures are favorable for asphalt paving in July, crews will mill and replace the top two inches of the existing roadway. Milling and paving work will be scheduled overnight to minimize traffic and access impacts.

Project completion is expected in September 2018. The project is weather-dependent and the schedule is subject to change. The total construction cost is approximately $3.3 million and the project is funded through state-wide resurfacing funds.
