“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.
