General Project Information

The Colorado Department of Transportation and A & S Construction will resurface approximately one mile of State Highway 9 (Summit Boulevard) between Interstate 70 and Main Street this summer. Near the end of April, crews will begin reconstructing concrete curb ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. Signed pedestrian detours will be provided for temporary ramp and sidewalk closures. Concrete curb work will take approximately one week at each location. Traffic signal systems will be upgraded simultaneously.

This project will also make concrete repairs to the westbound I-70 roundabout truck apron and the bridge over I-70. Once temperatures are favorable for asphalt paving in July, crews will mill and replace the top two inches of the existing roadway. Milling and paving work will be scheduled overnight to minimize traffic and access impacts.
Project completion is expected in September 2018. The project is weather-dependent and the schedule is subject to change. The total construction cost is approximately $3.3 million and the project is funded through state-wide resurfacing funds.

Traffic Impacts

Expect daytime single-lane closures starting in late April.

The project will be completed in phases in order to minimize traffic impacts. Concrete curb ramp repairs require daytime single-lane closures between 7am and 7pm Monday through Thursday with shorter closure hours on Fridays. Daytime lane closures are limited to ¼–mile. No work is scheduled on holidays or weekends. Driveway and side-street access will remain open during construction. Fines are double in the work zone.

Full bridge closure planned for four consecutive days in June

In June, the contractor will make repairs to the roundabout at the westbound I-70 ramps and the bridge over I-70. Bridge deck paving and roundabout work will require a four-day full closure of Summit Boulevard between the eastbound and westbound I-70 ramps. All ramps will remain open during the full closure and a signed detour will be provided. The full closure dates will be posted at least one week in advance on message boards along the corridor and on the project website.
