AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – The Colorado Department of Transportation began a new construction project on Monday.
Crews are rebuilding Interstate 70 between Tower Road and East Colfax Avenue in Aurora and replacing two bridges. Traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction 24 hours a day until the work is done.
CDOT expects the project to be finished in the summer of 2015.
The new road will have full shoulders and will be ready for future widening to three lanes each way.
