This eight-month improvement project includes resurfacing I-70 with a placement of thin bonded polyester concrete overlay, replacement of bridge joints and bearings, new pavement markings, and ADA ramp improvements at rest areas. Construction will occur within approximately 6.2 miles on I-70 in the Glenwood Canyon.
Polyester concrete overlay is the primary construction activity for this project. Upgrading this section of roadway will minimize the need for annual repairs as this road surface application is more durable and has a significantly longer lifespan than asphalt. This project will provide an improved driving surface and help ensure the longevity and safety of our infrastructure.
This $15.7-million CDOT contract was awarded to American Civil Constructors West Coast. ACCWC has experience with heavy-civil contracting services for infrastructure projects throughout the United States.
