About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contract partner Elam Construction will begin the Delta and Mesa county resurfacing project on May 3. The project will take place on US 50 beginning at Mile Point 47.6 and will continue for more than 16 miles to MP 64.5 near Delta.

This project will focus on a 2” hot mix asphalt overlay and installing guardrail that will meet the new safety standard requirements. The HMA will add approximately 10 years of life to the highway, a smoother road surface and will eliminate ruts and road damage. The new guardrail will be 31” high instead of 27” high to help vehicles remain on the road more effectively, making the highway safer for the traveling public. Additional work will consist of shoulder work, full depth reclamation, milling and striping.

Work Schedule

  • Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Traffic Impacts
