About the Project

Starting in early April and extending into fall 2020, CDOT and contractor partner, Kiewit Infrastructure Company, will construct passing lanes in both directions of US Highway 24 between McKenze Lane (Mile Point 327.1) and Bradshaw Road (MP 328.7). This project involves widening US 24 from two lanes to four lanes to provide approximately one mile of passing zone to improve safety.

A left turn lane will be added on westbound US 24 at Bradshaw Road along with an acceleration lane for motorists heading westbound from Bradshaw Road. The contractor will also reconstruct driveway and intersecting roadway approaches, extend cross culverts, and improve roadside ditches. US 24 will be resurfaced with new asphalt pavement within the project limits.

Work Schedule

  • Monday - Friday, daytime hours

Traffic Impacts

  • From April through October 2020, road work will be completed in phases in order to minimize traffic impacts. Drivers should expect traffic shifts, periodic lane closures and intermittent flagging for construction equipment access to the work site.
  • The first phase of construction will move all traffic to the north in order to widen US 24 in the eastbound direction.
  • One lane in each direction will be provided throughout most of the project and when workers are not present.
  • All work is weather-dependent and the schedule is subject to change. Visit the project website for the latest schedule information.
