About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation will begin surface overlay treatment work in June along Colorado Highway 67, near Florence. The project will take place over a five-month period on CO 67 from the Wetmore city limits, near the Wetmore Baptist Church to E. Main Street, (Mile Point 0 to MP 11.05). A & S Construction, of Cañon City, has been selected as the contractor for this project.

An asphalt overlay is a layer of new asphalt applied over the deteriorating existing asphalt. Surface overlay treatment projects are intended to provide safety to travelers by improving ride quality and prolonging the life of the road. Work will primarily consist of resurfacing the roadway, adding new guardrail and sign replacement. Work will be done in both the northbound and southbound lanes for an 11-mile stretch of CO 67.

Work Schedule & Traffic Impacts

  • Daytime work hours range from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Vehicles may be reduced to single-lane, alternating traffic intermittently in either direction, throughout the duration of the project.
  • These lane closures, guided by flaggers and pilot cars, may have up to 15 - minute delays. The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph through the work zone. The project is expected to last until the end of September.
