Eight miles of the Calhan Highway in eastern El Paso County between Judge Orr Road and Highway 94 has just been repaved. The project cost $1.8 million and was paid for by Pikes Peak Regional Transportation funds as well as money from El Paso County.
"It looks and drives great," says County Engineer Andre Brackin, "this road surface was simply worn out and it needed total rehabilitation. What we have now is a smoother, safer and much more usable roadway."
The project took about 7 weeks to complete.
