Phase 7 of Whole System-Whole Safety Roadwork Begins on I-70 in Glenwood Canyon

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, CO — The Colorado Department of Transportation Whole System-Whole Safety program announces Phase 7 of Interstate 70 Glenwood Canyon Improvements has begun. Much of the early stages of the project will be preparations for two elements. First is the traffic shift of westbound traffic down to the eastbound driving deck, one lane in each direction. The second element is preparation for making rest area curb ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

This eight-month improvement project includes resurfacing I-70 with a placement of thin bonded polyester concrete overlay, replacement of bridge joints and bearings, new pavement markings, and ADA ramp improvements at rest areas. Construction will occur within approximately 6.2 miles on I-70 in the Glenwood Canyon.

Polyester concrete overlay is the primary construction activity for this project. Upgrading this section of roadway will minimize the need for annual repairs as this road surface application is more durable and has a significantly longer lifespan than asphalt. This project will provide an improved driving surface and help ensure the longevity and safety of our infrastructure.

This $15.7-million CDOT contract was awarded to American Civil Constructors West Coast. ACCWC has experience with heavy-civil contracting services for infrastructure projects throughout the United States.
