Southeastern CO Centerline Rumble Strip Installation

Project Complete!

"The Colorado Department of Transportation and Surface Preparation Technologies (SPT) will be constructing centerline rumble strips along sections of seventeen highways in southeast and south-central Colorado.

The project will include centerline rumble strip installation and pavement markings in seven counties: El Paso, Fremont, Huerfano, Las Animas, Park, Pueblo, and Teller.

Approximately 200 miles of roadway will be improved with the installation of centerline rumble strips along segments of the following highways: Colorado Highways 9, 45, 47, 67, 78, 83, 94, 96, 105, 115 and 165; US Highways 24, 50, 85, 160 and 285; and Interstate 25.

Rumble strips are an effective measure for reducing roadway departure crashes. Grooves are cut into the pavement which cause a vibration and rumbling sound when the tires of a moving vehicle come in contact with the cut pavement. The noise and vibration produced by rumble strips alert drivers when they leave the travel lane. Centerline rumble strips reduce head-on collisions and cross-over crashes, while shoulder rumble strips reduce run-off-the-road crashes and warn drivers when they have drifted from their lane.

SPT is the contractor for this $1,847,077 project."
