Repair projects will take place in Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver and Jefferson counties on I-70, I-25, US 36, CO 128, US 285 and US 40.
Asphalt pavement repair includes placing heated sealant into cracks in and along the travel lanes of asphalt pavement and asphalt bridge decks to prevent water damage and slow pavement deterioration. The sealant material to be used on the roadways is highly durable and waterproof. The repairs will increase the longevity of the roads and improve motorist safety, according to CDOT Resident Engineer Ryan Sorensen.
Working hours will be 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Sunday through Thursday. No detours or extended full road closures are planned, but motorists can expect various intermittent lane closures.
The work is weather dependent/sensitive, so CDOT cannot plan the exact dates for each location too far in advance, said Stacia Sellers, CDOT's Region 1 communications specialist.
“We will know at least a week in advance where we'll go next,” she said, “but if the weather takes a turn for the worse, we'll move on to a different location with better weather.”
The project costs $1.3 million and CDOT. The contractor partner is Interstate Sealant Inc.
The segments of highway included in the project are:
• I-70 Eastbound: Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnel to mile point 218
• I-70 Westbound: Silver Plume to Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnel
• I-25: 6th Avenue to 14th Avenue
• I-25: 23rd Avenue to 44th Avenue
• I-25: 6th Avenue to Colfax Avenue
