Edison St (US 34) Lane Closures

Please slow for construction zones on Edison Street (US 34) now through April 24! CDOT will be installing several curb ramps and repairing damaged curb and gutter in advance of asphalt resurfacing work later this season and next. Drivers should anticipate daily right lane and shoulder closures Monday - Friday from 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. between Hospital Road and Custer Street. Similar work will also occur between Clifton Street and Curtis Street.

Project background:

Both Interstate 76 and US Highway 34 near Fort Morgan and Brush are set for major pavement rehabilitation work.

Starting in late April, CDOT and contractor partner, Martin Marietta, will begin extensive pavement work on westbound Interstate 76 at two separate work zones near the cities of Fort Morgan and Brush:

I-76 from west of Colorado Highway 144 (mile point 78.2) to east of Barlow Road (MP 82.9)

I-76 near US 6 east of Brush (MP 90.8 to 92.3)

This project will repair six bridges on I-76, remove and replace asphalt, upgrade guardrail, and restripe the highway. I-76 will be reduced to one westbound lane through each work zone. The 24/7 single-lane configuration will help expedite construction. Once work is complete in the right lane, traffic will switch onto the new pavement and work will occur in the left lane. Similar repairs are planned for eastbound I-76 starting in late summer. All I-76 work is expected to be complete by the end of 2020.

This project also includes major asphalt pavement rehabilitation along most of US 34 from I-76 to CO 71 south. Starting this spring, the contractor will begin the following minor work in preparation for future resurfacing:

·        Bridge repairs at three locations

·        Curb ramp upgrades at several intersections in downtown Fort Morgan and Brush

Intermittent lane closures are expected on US 34. Temporary sidewalk closures may be necessary in downtown areas, but business access will remain open during construction. Work on US 34 is anticipated to extend into fall 2021.
