US 50 Settlement Repair Near Delta

Project Complete!

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contract partner Elam Construction will resume the Delta and Mesa county resurfacing project on April 20. The project will take place on US 50 beginning at Mile Point 47.6 and will continue for more than 19 miles to MP 66.7 near Delta.

This project will focus on a 2” hot mix asphalt overlay and installing guardrail that will meet the new safety standard requirements. The HMA will add approximately 10 years of life to the highway, a smoother road surface and will eliminate ruts and road damage. The new guardrail will be 31” high instead of 27” high to help vehicles remain on the road more effectively, making the highway safer for the traveling public. Additional work will consist of shoulder work, full depth reclamation, milling and striping.
