Asphalt Overlay Project 
Beginning Apr. 17, crews will begin improving 40 pedestrian ramps and replacing 5,600-feet of guardrail along US Hwy 6. These activities are part of a 2-month paving overlay project that will improve three areas (please see the link for a color-coded map):
1. US Hwy 6 from just west of Storm King Drive to the CO-82 intersection (green)
2. Midland Avenue from Devereux Road to Eighth Street (red)
3. The downtown detour squareabout route (purple)
Crews are scheduled to begin paving the US Hwy 6 corridor in May. Stay tuned for an updated schedule and traffic impacts associated with this work.

Traffic Impacts

Beginning the week of May 8 through approximately May 19, some areas of US Hwy 6 will be in an alternating one-lane configuration while crews pave the highway. Traffic control will maintain two lanes when possible. Fifteen-minute delays are anticipated from 6 AM to 7 PM, Monday through Friday. Temporary traffic holds are anticipated on side streets. Business access will be maintained during this time, with a brief hold in front of each business as crews lay new asphalt. Pedestrian access is maintained on sidewalks along US Hwy 6.
