Travel Impacts

Motorists can expect brief delays, and should prepare for stops and one-lane alternating traffic guided by flaggers and a pilot vehicle. The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph in the work zone.

CDOT urges the traveling public to slow down and be aware of workers and equipment on the roadway.
