CDOT resuming Highway 9 construction near Silverthorne

SUMMIT COUNTY – Work is resuming on Colorado Highway 9 north of Silverthorne between Rock Creek and the Blue River.

The Colorado Department of Transportation project includes realigning segments of the highway, rotomilling, paving and shoulder widening. Two wildlife crossings, a new bridge over the Blue River, retaining walls and culverts are being built.

Drivers can expect stops up to 20 minutes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays. Work primarily is taking place between mile marker 109 and 115.

A 35-mile speed limit is in place through the work zone. Wide loads are not restricted from traveling through the project, but a restriction remains possible as work progresses.

The project is scheduled to continue through early November. After a winter shutdown, work will resume in April or May 2003. The entire project will be completed by the fall of 2003.

The contractor for the $12.3 million project is PCL Civil Construction of Denver.
