Fall may be in the air, but the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is still feverishly working on needed highway maintenance before the weather turns wintery.

It has just been announced that CDOT crews plan to pave a three-mile stretch of  U.S. 24 south of Granite. Motorists can expect lengthy delays of up to 20 minutes from Monday through Thursday, September 18-21. The section being repaved is near Clear Creek Reservoir.

The announcement assures the public that “CDOT crews will work as swiftly as possible to complete the surface treatment, however resurfacing operations are weather dependent.”

Operations will take place approximately one mile south of Granite, Mile Points 195 to 198. Between 6:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. travelers will encounter full stops and one-lane alternating traffic guided by flaggers and pilot cars.

Traffic Impacts 
Daytime work hours will range from 6:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday.

Motorists should plan for 15-20 minute delays and allow for extra travel time.

Vehicles will be guided by cones, flagging personnel, and pilot cars. Access in and out of intersections may be restricted at times. A speed reduction to 40 mph will be enforced through the work zones.

Travelers are urged to “know before you go.” Gather information about weather forecasts and anticipated travel impacts and current road conditions prior to hitting the road. CDOT resources include:
