Pushing the 2C paving season limit

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

October 31st is the date set as the end of the time line for this year's 2C repaving projects in Colorado Springs. The day is here, only there are multiple locations where work is not complete.

It is not because crews are behind on this year’s list of repaving projects. “We were able to add lane miles to that list this year,” said Streets Division Manager, Corey Farkas. Because work was progressing so well earlier in the summer project managers decided to add 18 extra lane males for paving this year.

Now paving will go into the first couple weeks of November. The weather forecast shows temperatures just warm enough for paving.  To make it happen crews have switched to what's called "warm mix" asphalt. "It allows them to lay asphalt at cooler ambient temperatures, cooler ground temperatures and at a cooler temperature, the asphalt itself," said Farkas.

Pikes Peak Avenue, Research Parkway, and Delmonico Drive are locations with unfinished work. Depending on the location work will wrap in the next week to two weeks.
