I-70 Sign Structure Replacement Project

About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor partner Kraemer North America will begin work to remove a damaged sign structure on the eastbound ramp from US 6 to I-25 in addition to removal and replacement of several sign structures along I-70 between Kipling and I-25. Work on the project is anticipated to be completed by mid-October. The sign structures and signs set to be replaced are currently in poor condition and will be upgraded to meet current federal highway standards. This project will improve visibility of signs with new reflective material and help motorists navigate the interstate safely.

The first phase of the project removed a sign structure on the eastbound US 6 ramp to I-25 over the South Platte River.

The next phase will remove three overhead sign structures and install five new cantilever overhead sign structures on eastbound I-70 between Kipling St. & Wadsworth Boulevard. Work will also include replacing overhead and ground-mounted sign panels between the Wadsworth Boulevard and I-25 interchanges along I-70.
