About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contract partner Work Zone Traffic Control will begin a sign replacement

County line, to MP 53.9, Bayou Gulch.

Work will include the removal of 317 worn out signs, installation of 349 new signs and installation of new sign posts. The new
