Work begins on U.S. 40 paving near Muddy Pass

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor A & S Construction this week began a project to resurface U.S. 40 over Muddy Pass, between mile markers 165 and 179 (east and west of state highway 14).The work was contracted to A & S Construction of Cann City for $4.2 million. Work involves recycling and replacement of the top 2 inches of asphalt, followed by a 2-inch overlay of new asphalt. The asphalt recycling process reduces reflective cracking up into the top layer of asphalt, thereby extending the life of this new surface. This project also includes guardrail adjustment and new striping on U.S. 40 in Grand County. The work is scheduled for completion this September. Working hours will be from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m., Monday through Friday. There will be single-lane, alternating traffic through the work zone and motorists can anticipate delays of about 15 minutes, depending on summer traffic volumes. No weekend work is anticipated at this point. Crews thank motorists for driving alert and going “Slow for the Cone Zone!” For more information contact Bill Flowers, A & S Construction, toll-free at 800-380-9739. In case of an emergency, call the CDOT main office at 719-275-4555.
