CLEAR CREEK CANYON, Colo. (KDVR) — The Colorado Department of Transportation said work will begin on the US 6 Clear Creek Canyon Resurfacing and Safety Improvements project on Monday. APC Construction is working on the project that is slated to improve the 11.37-mile stretch of US 6 by:

  • Resurfacing the entire project zone to address the severe deterioration of the pavement, leading to a smoother and safer driving experience.
  • Minor widening of the shoulders for added safety.
  • Removing and replacing all guardrail within the project limits.
  • Cleaning culverts, removing loose rocks, and installing new signage and striping to meet current
    standards.

CDOT said travelers should expect delays Monday through Thursday (6 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and Friday (6 a.m. to 12 p.m.) when crews will intermittently hold traffic for up to 10 minutes each direction during quarter-mile single lane closures.

The exact location of work being done is on US 6 between CO 119 and the junction of CO 58 and 93 in Clear Creek Canyon.

Work is expected to be completed by next summer with a winter shutdown from December to February 2022.
