The Weld County Department of Public Works will continue work on its highway reconstruction project on Colo. 392 between Weld County roads 23 and 21 this week.
The project is expected to last through June.
Last July, the department began a highway reconstruction project on Colo. 392 between Weld County roads 23 and 21, near Windsor.
The purpose of the project is to improve highway infrastructure on Colo. 392 and create a safer intersection as well as less traffic congestion. The project, which includes the permanent closure of a portion of Weld County Road 23 north of Colo. 392, was expected to last through November 2013, but the September floods prevented the project from being completed last year.
“We are glad to see this project start up again,” said Board of Commissioners Chairman Douglas Rademacher. “The contractor started the project late last summer, and they are ready to finish it as quickly as they can.”
The project was awarded to Mountain Constructors, Inc. last July and will be paid for through funds from the Colorado Department of Transportation, the North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Organization, Weld County, the Town of Windsor and the Town of Severance. Intersection improvements will include turn lanes, as well as acceleration and deceleration lanes.
Work will include a detour of westbound traffic on Colo. 392 and closure of the south leg of Weld 23, north of Colo. 392.
