CO 14 Pawnee Pass to Sterling Resurfacing

Work this Week
May 22-28, 2022

During this short holiday week, crews will continue paving at the west end of the project and resume full depth reclamation from Tumbleweed Drive to CR 35 at the east end of the project corridor.

Motorists can expect:
  • Eastbound lane closure will be in place on CO 14 from Mile Point 230 to MP 234 Monday to Thursday for full depth reclamation of the pavement
  • Westbound lane closure will exist on CO 14 from MP 229-227 Monday to Thursday for paving
    The closures will exist during working hours only from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Pilot cars will be present to direct alternating traffic through the single lane configurations
  • The closures are necessary while crews perform full depth reclamation of the highway pavement and pave a two mile section at the west end of the project
