Highway Improvements on US 24 in Lake County South of Leadville are Complete

LAKE COUNTY, CO — A highway improvement project for US Highway 24 and Colorado Highway 300 in Lake County is now complete. Crews with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) contractor APC Southern Construction have finished work on the project, which is located south of Leadville. The project improved approximately 17 miles of US 24, beginning south of Leadville at Mile Point 177 and continuing west to MP 193.8, as well as 3.4 miles of roadway on CO 300 between MP 0.0 and 3.4.

“Highway 24 is a critical link for people in the upper Arkansas Valley, and while CO 300 may be one of the shorter highways on the state system, it's nice to have a smooth ride out to the Fish Hatchery and Soda Springs," said CDOT Chief Engineer Stephen Harelson.

The work included resurfacing of approximately 21.4 miles of roadway and incorporated deck milling, sealing, and repaving bridge structures; shoulder widening between MP 179.9 and MP 181.2; erosion control; guardrail replacement; rumble strips; signing; and striping. The project was contracted to APC Southern Construction, of Golden.

This project greatly enhances safety for motorists traveling along this two-lane highway. Drivers will find a smoother roadway surface with new guardrail, new signage, high visibility markings, and stabilized shoulders.
