US 6 Highway Improvements in Palisade

Project Complete!

The Town of Palisade, Colorado Department of Transportation, and prime contractor United Companies will begin intersection improvements along US Highway 6 starting at the end of January. Work will take place between Logan Avenue and Riverside Drive.

Project improvements will include curb, gutter, sidewalk, ADA ramp, crosswalk, drainage, and median reconfigurations to establish dedicated turn lanes at intersections. This is a precursor to a larger repaving project that will begin at the end of April, 2022.

The project will improve and prolong the life of the road surface, as well as make intersections more accessible for multi-modal travelers. Work will start on eastbound lanes, move to westbound lanes and finish with a center island replacement and landscaping. The goals of these improvements are to enhance existing infrastructure, and create safer, more accessible travel paths.
