About the Project:

This is a shoulder widening and resurfacing project located on CO119 south of Nederland. (Mile Points 22.7 to 25.8)

Work will include asphalt overlay and existing culvert cleaning and
rehabilitation. In addition, new signs and delineators will also be installed along the project corridor.
