I-70 Improvements from Frisco to Silverthorne

About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation and prime contractor, United Companies, will begin construction on westbound lanes from Silverthorne to Frisco along I-70 starting the first week of May. Work is expected to go through late fall. The project will span for approximately five miles from MM 203 to MM 207. Work will include the following items:

  • Repaving all westbound lanes in the construction zone
  • Removal and replacement of deteriorating portions of concrete bridge decks (will improve the bridge’s integrity and longevity)
  • Upgrades to existing guardrail (new features will help prevent future slope erosion)
