Colorado DOT Completes Intersection Improvement and Resurfacing Overlay Project

CAHONE, CO − The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) announces the completion of the U.S. Highway 491/CO Highway 184, Lewis to Cahone, resurfacing overlay project. The project started approximately 6 months ago in mid-April and was completed on time. Four Corners Material was the contractor selected for the $11-million project.

As part of CDOT’s Whole System Whole Safety initiative, this project focused on safety enhancements at the intersection of U.S. 491 and Montezuma County Road BB. The intersection has limited sight distance and heavy traffic flow. An advanced warning sign system was installed to give north and southbound motorists on U.S. 491 notice that there is traffic getting ready to access the highway at the intersection of CR BB. This warning will allow motorists time to slow down and be aware of traffic coming onto the highway.

This project also included 18 miles of road service improvements on U.S. 491, from Lewis to Cahone, and four miles on CO 184. Improvements consisted of a one-inch leveling course to smooth the roadway, final overlay, new striping and shoulder graveling. Guardrail adjustments were also addressed on CO 184 near the Narraguinnep Reservoir along with widening, new paint striping and an overlay at CR S.
