About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contracting partner Sturgeon Electric will begin signal improvements on CO
Highway 7 on May 9. The project will take place on CO 7 and Commerce Street/Eisenhower Drive.

Work will include the removal and installation of traffic signal equipment, poles, mast arms, pedestrian push buttons, signing
and vehicle detection upgrades. Crews will also install Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps. The new ramps will be in compliance with the Public Right of Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG) requirements and will provide functional accessibility to all travelers using our state and US highways.

Project Benefits

  • Traffic signals are a vital part of controlling traffic in a safe and efficient manner by providing regulated movement.

Project Schedule

  • Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • The project, starting in May, has an anticipated completion date of July 2022.
