About the Project:

The project will focus on a chip seal application to protect and prolong the surface of the roadway. Work will also include striping. Chip seal will take place at the following four locations:

  • US Highway 6 from Mile Point 11 to MP 20 •CO Highway 139 from
    MP 0 to MP 6
  • US 50 Frontage Road from MP 33.8 to MP 36.2 •CO 141 from
    MP 120 to MP 154.1

The new surface will enhance safety for motorists by providing skid resistance, prolong the life of the roadway surface, and reduce overall cracking. The new striping will offer better visibility for drivers.

Crews will also remove the old epoxy striping and replace it with a temporary paint during construction.
