CO 67 & US 24 Culvert & Inlet Construction

About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation will begin drainage work in Teller County at two locations this fall. Crews will begin culvert repair work on US 24 at Mile Point 288.11, north of Crystola on October 11. In December, crews will move to CO 67, Mile Point 64.65 south of Divide, to rehabilitate the culvert at that location. Motorists should anticipate minor impacts to travel, but are asked to watch for crews in the area. American West Construction, LLC of Denver has been selected as the contractor for the project.

Culvert rehabilitation and replacement work is necessary to accommodate higher accumulations of rainfall and lower the risks of roadway flooding. Work is scheduled to be completed by early-November on US 24 and work on CO 67 will be completed by year end. Work is weather dependent.
