US 40 Grand County Traffic Signal Replacement

April 10, 2020 - Northwestern Colorado - Speed Limits to be Strictly Enforced

GRAND COUNTY- Starting Monday, April 13, 2020, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and contract partner Casper Electric will begin a traffic signal replacement project on US 40 at two locations. The project limits will be on US 40 and CO 9/6th Street in Kremmling and on US 40 and 1st Street in Granby. The project has an anticipated completion date of Oct. 2020.  

As part of CDOT’s Whole System - Whole Safety initiative, this project will improve safety by adding new vehicle detection to improve realtime traffic monitoring. Crews will also install 14 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps which will provide functional accessibility to all travelers using our state and U.S. highways.

In addition to the new ADA ramps and vehicle detection upgrades work will include: removal and installation of new traffic signal equipment, signal poles, mast arms, signing and striping.    

TRAVEL  IMPACTS 

Motorists can expect a shoulder closure and right lane closure.  The project will be in operation Monday through Friday from 7 am to 7 pm.

COVID-19

Safe transportation infrastructure is essential for emergency first responders and freight drivers as Colorado navigates the COVID-19 pandemic. With that in mind, construction continues on CDOT projects with social distancing and other measures to reduce COVID-19 exposure on the worksite. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment announced guidelines for construction activities. Gov. Polis issued an emergency, temporary stay-at-home order for all of Colorado, which went into effect Thursday, March 26. With this order, the public is urged to join the campaign for #DoingMyPartCO and avoid all nonessential travel. With fewer vehicles on the roads, CDOT crews will be able to work more efficiently and safely.

WHOLE SYSTEM. WHOLE SAFETY.  

To heighten safety awareness, CDOT recently announced its Whole System — Whole Safety initiative. This project takes a systematic statewide approach to safety combining the benefits of CDOT’s programs that address driving behaviors, our built environment and the organization's operations. The goal is to improve the safety of Colorado’s transportation network by reducing the rate and severity of crashes and improving the safety of all transportation modes. The program has one simple mission—to get everyone home safely.
