GOLDEN, Colo. -- The Colorado Transportation Department—CDOT—is rolling out the list of more than 50 summer cone-zone construction projects which are designed to improve roads and bridges, but can also cause delays in getting from here to there.
“We are constantly working to improve our roads,” said Tony DeVito of CDOT.
“We are fortunate to have an extremely active construction season this summer thanks in part to partnerships and funding from U.S. DOT Tiger grants, the Colorado Bridge Enterprise and our state, local and federal partners.”
Up and down I-25 there will be lanes added, bridges fixed or rebuilt, and merge lanes improved.
On the Boulder Turnpike, improvements will continue, and I-225 will see lanes added and Light Rail construction continue.
This season CDOT has more than $940 million for the metro area projects.
For motorists leaving the city and heading into the high country, the Twin Tunnels at Idaho Springs will be a slow-down point, with tunnel blasting happening through mid-August.
