About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation and prime contractor, RoadSafe Traffic Systems will begin a pavement-marking work across nine highways in southeastern Colorado on August 21. This project will focus on the removal and replacement of median and shoulder striping. The project will be broken in to two phases, one occurring in the fall from August until late October and one in the spring of 2023 from March until June. During the winter, work will cease and there will be no impacts to traffic. During the fall phase of the project, crews will start operations on CO 67, and move to US 50, CO 96, CO 165, CO 160, and end with US 50. The spring phase will focus on striping the remaining highways.

The project work zones are spread across several counties in Southeastern Colorado. These zones include:

  • Park County: CO State Highway 9 from Mile Point 70.36 to 80.24, MP 64.67 to 65.40, MP 47.58 to 63.73 and MP 18.0 to 46.97. US 285 will
    also be impacted from MP 201.11 to 207.62 and MP 185.30 to 188.0.
