Crews Start Bridge Repairs June 18 on US 50 at Agate Creek

June 14, 2018 -

Starting Monday, June 18, CDOT will begin repairing a bridge on US Highway 50. Crews on this project will also install guardrail and pave along US 50, about 10 miles west of Monarch Pass.

The project site is at Agate Creek just east of the town of Sargents in Saguache County. Dietzler Construction was awarded the project for $1.2 million.

With a push for a mid-October completion, crews will kick off work by setting up the work site, mobilizing equipment, and clearing vegetation from the area. Travelers can expect work on US 50 from mile points 190 to 191.

Travel Impacts

Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Travelers can expect single-lane, alternating traffic.

Be prepared to stop, directed by signal lights, 24/7. The protable traffic light signals are expected to be set in place after the Fourth of July holiday.

Travelers also can expect traffic control devices through the work zone (electronic signs, barrels, cones, and portable rumble strips). The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph in the work zone and will be strictly enforced. Fines are doubled in the work zone.

A width restriction of 12 feet is in place, 24/7.

Please watch for construction personnel, heavy equipment and avoid distractions when driving through the work zone.
