US 85 Platteville Resurfacing Between CO 60 and CO 66

Project Complete!

This project has improved US Highway 85 near Platteville. Over three miles of northbound and southbound US 85 (Mile Points 250.5 – 254.0) received a new asphalt surface. The project also extended the northbound US 85 left-turn lane at Colorado Highway 60, constructed intersection safety improvements at Marion Avenue, and upgraded striping and signage throughout the corridor. A center median was added at Marion Avenue to limit access to right-in, right-out on all approaches except northbound US 85 where left turns will still be possible onto Marion Avenue.
