Resurfacing of U.S. 40/ Colfax Avenue complete


With the completion of the U.S. 40/Colfax Avenue resurfacing project, motorists will experience a smoother surface and safer driving conditions.

The Colorado Department of Transportation project spanned Interstate 70 to Kipling Street, and included updated traffic signal equipment and bridge deck repairs.

“We know and understand that construction projects can be an inconvenience to motorists,” said Paul Jesaitis, Region 1 transportation director. “This project was very important for CDOT to complete as it brought the highway up to standards and provides many safety improvements that will benefit both pedestrians and motorists.”

APC Construction Co. was the prime contractor for this $2.9 million project that began in June. Work along this stretch of roadway included asphalt resurfacing, ADA curb ramp improvements, bridge deck repairs, updated signs and updated traffic signal equipment.
