A huge pothole in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 in Wheatridge proved to have too much damage for crews to make the repairs in a short time so commuters are urged to find alternate routes.
Problems arising from contaminated ground water have delayed the reconstruction of a bridge on Interstate 70 near Idaho Springs.
There could be a delay clearing snow off a busy stretch of Interstate 70 in the high country from Idaho Springs to the Eisenhower Tunnel because plow drivers for that vital stretch of road don’t have a home.
Crews will demolish a bridge spanning Interstate 70 next week to help with construction on the heavily-trafficked route to the mountains.
If it’s not construction, then it’s jams, accidents and rush hour that continually slow down traffic on Highway 36 between Denver and Boulder.
The summer road work season is stretching into the fall and right now a major project underway along Interstate 25 and 6th Avenue is starting to aggravate commuters.
A major phase of the rebuilding of the 6th Avenue bridge starts this week. The phase begins with lane closures along 6th Avenue at Federal Boulevard and on Federal between 2nd and 8th avenues.
Next month the Colorado Department of Transportation will kick off a new campaign aimed at warning people against smoking marijuana and driving called “Drive High, Get a DUI.”
The federal government has given Colorado new funding to help recognize stoned drivers and keep them off the road.
