Project Facts

  • Cost: $5.6 million
  • Contractor(s): Connell Resources, Inc.

Beginning April 2, crews began making improvements to Colorado Highway 14 (East Mulberry Street) from South Lemay Avenue (mile point 136.12) to Interstate 25 (mile point 139.9). Work will improve the road's driving surface, and upgrade pedestrian crossings at intersections. The project is expected to last approximately five months.

About FDR

Full-depth reclamation (FDR) pulverizes existing roadway materials on-site using a reclaimer machine, mixes those materials with water and stabilizing ingredients (such as dry cement or asphalt emulsion), and then lays down the recycled materials to create a stronger, long-lasting base for the new road surface.

  • resurfacing the roadway, curb and gutter;
  • installing pedestrian ramps at intersections;
  • seeding with native grasses;
  • improving medians;
  • full-depth reclamation (FDR) between South Timberline Road and South Summit View Drive; and
  • signal improvements at Timberline Road.

Schedule

  • A considerable amount of work on this project will take place at night.
  • Construction will occur from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday.

Traffic Impacts

  • Work will begin on the project's west end near Lemay and proceed east to I-25.
  • During the FDR work—anticipated to begin in late April and continue for 10 days—traffic will be detoured along the frontage road on the south side of Mulberry. Expect major impacts to traffic on the south side of Mulberry.
  • Access will be made available at all times to businesses and residents along Mulberry.
  • Once FDR is complete, crews will apply an overlay to the frontage road used for the detour.
  • Travelers can expect minor delays throughout the project, including occasional lane shifts and temporary lane closures to allow for trucks and equipment entering the highway.
  • Please keep in mind your safety and the safety of flaggers and construction crews, who will be working closely to traffic flow.
