CDOT to resume Traffic Signal Replacement project in the Denver metro area this week

January 16, 2018 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Project will increase the safety of motorists and pedestrians

DENVER — The Colorado Department of Transportation will resume the Traffic Signal Replacement project at three intersections in the Denver metro area starting Tuesday, Jan. 16. Following a temporary shut down due to design changes along with material lead times, crews will work at the intersections of  Interstate 70 and Chambers Road; I-25 and County Line Road; and CO 75 and Coal Mine Avenue. The project is expected to be completed by late spring 2018.

This $1.1 million project includes removal of existing traffic signals at the three intersections in order to install new ones. This project will also upgrade signing and striping, curb ramps, and storm drain outlet protection in these areas.


Work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Jan. 16 at the three intersections. Motorists should expect right-lane closures and lane shifts throughout the duration of the project. Intermittent nighttime work and temporary traffic stops are expected when crews remove and replace the mast arms.

Normal working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. In special cases these hours may be extended. All work is weather-related and changes to the schedule are possible.
