One-lane alternating traffic on SH 392 near WCR 41 starts Monday

April 1, 2016 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - The Colorado Department of Transportation and prime contractor, Martin Marietta, will begin making repairs to an irrigation pipe at Weld County Road 41 on Monday.

WELD COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Transportation and prime contractor, Martin Marietta, will begin making repairs to an irrigation pipe at Weld County Road 41 on Monday, which will require a one-lane configuration with flagger control during daylight work hours. Repairs are anticipated to take only a few days to complete.

Crews will also make repairs to an irrigation pipe east of Weld County Road 53 starting on Tuesday. Near WCR 53, a temporary traffic signal system will alternate eastbound and westbound SH 392 traffic under a one-lane configuration for several weeks. Delays should be minimal at both of these locations. All work is weather-dependent and the schedule is subject to change.

The pipe work is in advance of a roadway resurfacing project on State Highway 392 from east of US Highway 85 in Lucerne to WCR 59. When pipe repairs are complete, the contractor will resurface SH 392 (Mile Point 115.5 to MP 126) during daylight hours. After crews mill the existing surface, the road base will be improved before placing new asphalt. More extensive roadbed repairs will be made at spot locations. There is a 1/2–mile segment near WCR 47 that is not included in the project.

The entire 10-mile work zone will not be under active construction at the same time. Motorists should expect one-lane alternating traffic conditions for up to two miles at any point within the work zone from late April through August 2016. Delays up to 20 minutes are possible. Speeds through the one-lane sections will be reduced to 40 mph. A width-restriction of 10 feet will be in place for the project.

Martin Marietta was awarded the $5.7 million contract by CDOT. The project is funded through a combination of federal and state contributions.
