Northeastern Colorado Signal Backplate Replacement

About the Project

The Colorado Department of Transportation will begin work across the western portion of Region 4 to remove and replace the signal head backplates and visors.

Signal backplates are intended to expand the visibility of the signal by providing a consistent and controlled background of the signal. This helps to improve safety of the intersection in which the signal is located.
