CO 67 Safety Improvements in Douglas & Teller Counties

About the Project:

This is a safety improvement project which will include shoulder widening and realignment of the highway at two separate locations along Colorado Highway 67 in Douglas and Teller Counties. The project limits are between mile points (MP) 55 and 91.5.

  • Worksite #1:  CO 67 - Douglas County - Mile Points 89.5-90.5 - This portion of the project will begin first in late May.  
  • Worksite #2:  CO 67 - Teller County - Mile Points 55.7 - 57.9 - This portion of the project is expected to begin in July.  

Project Benefits

  • Widening provides enhanced safety and mobility for motorists traveling on narrow two-lane highways.
  • Construction of wider shoulders will improve safety by providing a larger recoverable area on the side of the roadway and reduce the potential of crashes from vehicles veering off the main roadway.

Work Schedule:

  • Normal working hours will be Monday through Friday 7am to 5pm.
  • Some weekend work is possible.

Traffic Impacts:

Motorists can expect the following impacts during the period of construction:

  • Motorists will encounter alternating lane closures and delays up to 15 minutes can be expected during working hours.
  • On CO 67 north of Woodland Park, between MP 90.4 and 90.6, lane closures may be in place and delays up to 30 minutes can be expected. This will occur no more than three times per day.
