The Colorado Department of Transportation and APC Construction are scheduled to begin the Sheridan Boulevard repaving and repairs project the week of June 12. Completion of this project is targeted for later this winter.
The $5.2 million project focuses on the maintenance of Sheridan Boulevard between Arizona Avenue and Hampden Avenue (US Highway 285). Work includes asphalt repaving, concrete ADA curb ramp upgrades, minor repairs of the Bear Creek bridge and traffic signal pole replacements at the intersections of Evans and Yale Avenues.
“This project will address much needed maintenance for one of the city’s most used highways,” said CDOT Resident Engineer Robert Smith. “The repairs will not only create a smoother driving surface for motorists, but the upgraded curb ramps and traffic signal upgrades are being made with pedestrians in mind.”
Phases of work
Initial phases of the project includes concrete work associated with ramp and gutter upgrades. Asphalt removal and replacement will begin in mid-August and take place at night, as to impact the public as minimally as possible. Bridge work over Bear Creek near Hampden Avenue will be conducted within the month of September, while the traffic signal pole replacements will take place from June to November.
Normal working hours are Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Fridays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Night work is expected to begin in August, and will have working hours of 7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. from Sunday through Thursday.
