Crews Start Clear Creek Ecological Restoration Project Near Georgetown

March 20, 2018 -


CLEAR CREEK COUNTY—
Crews this month will realign a channel of Clear Creek, and complete associated floodplain grading and vegetation. Work on this $880,000 project will be completed off the roadway, approximately 1.75 miles north of Georgetown.

"This project proactively repairs a section of Clear Creek that is in need of restoration to improve how and where the stream flows," said Paul Jesaitis, transportation director of CDOT's Denver metro region. "It also affords us the ability to mitigate any potential impacts future projects along the I-70 corridor may have. For example, future projects could create additional wetlands at this location to offset impacts."

This project will continue through spring 2018, as weather permits.

Travel Impacts

Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, with minimal traffic impacts occurring on Alvarado Road when equipment is taken to and from the project site.
