About the Project:

Colorado Department of Transportation and American Striping Company, will begin stencil work the week of May 2 on many state and US highways in southeast Colorado. The highways affected are as follows: CO 9C, 24H, 24G, 47A, 50A, 83A, and 285D. Crews will be removing and replacing cross walks, stop bars, arrows, and skips across the intersections. This project was contracted to American Striping Company.

“Stencils are a key component to making roadways safer across Colorado,” explained Alejandra Harvey, American Striping President/CEO. “American Striping looks forward to delivering this project and enhancing safety for users in the southeast portion of the state."

This project is part of CDOT’s “Whole System. Whole Safety.” initiative aimed at enhancing safety for Colorado’s traveling public. The removing and replacing of the lines will allow intersections to be more easily identified in dark and inclement weather, improving driver and pedestrian safety. This will reduce incidents.
