Travel Advisory

May 24, 2022 - Northwestern Colorado - Crews anticipated to start work at the end of May

Jackson County —The Colorado Department of Transportation, in collaboration with McAtee Construction, will begin resurfacing work on Monday, May 31 in Jackson County. Work will take place along two highways, Colorado Highway 14 and CO 125 in Walden. The first phase of the project will begin at the end of May along 8 miles of CO 14, from Mile Point 11 to MP 19. Starting in mid-July, crews will move operations to CO 125 through downtown Walden from MP 52.3 to MP 55.

Work will primarily consist of resurfacing the roadways using a mill and overlay process. Additionally, two locations along CO 14 will be widened for truck turnarounds. Work will be done in both the northbound and southbound lanes for the duration of the project. This project will improve and prolong the life of the road surface, offering a higher quality driving experience for travelers. A smooth highway has many important safety benefits for all motorists.

Traffic Impacts

Daytime work hours will range from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Vehicles may be reduced to a single-lane, alternating traffic intermittently in either direction throughout the duration of the project. The lane closures are not expected to significantly impact traffic flow, but may cause minimal delays. The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph on CO 14 through the work zone. The project is expected to last until mid August.
