US 34 Resurfacing North of Granby

About the Project

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contract partner Elam Construction begins preparations this week for the US 34 north of Granby resurfacing project. 

Preparation work will take place along two roadways, US Highway 34 and US Highway 40 near Granby.

Construction crews will begin the surface treatment project the week of July 7. Work will begin on US 34 at Mile Point 0 and will continue for 15 miles to MP 15. On US 40, the work will take place from MP 210.9 to MP 211.25 which is near the intersection of US 34 and US 40. 

As part of CDOT’s Whole System — Whole Safety initiative, this project will focus on a 2.5” hot mix asphalt overlay and installing guardrail that will meet the new safety standard requirements.  The HMA will add approximately 10 years of life to the highway, a smoother road surface and will eliminate ruts and road damage.  The new guardrail will be 31” high instead of 27” high to help vehicles remain on the road more effectively, making the highway safer for the traveling public.  

Additional work will consist of shoulder work, milling and striping.
