EL PASO COUNTY — According to a release, starting in late April CDOT will begin working on adding left turns lane on CO-94.
This project is expected to last into late summer of 2020 and will work a contracting partner, Kiewit Infrastructure Company.
The improvement are expected to reduce traffic collisions by introducing additional room to complete turning maneuvers outside of through travel lanes.
The contractor will also widen shoulders, improve drainage infrastructure, and resurface Peyton Highway intersection approaches. CO 94 will be resurfaced with new asphalt pavement within the project limits.
Drivers should expect traffic shifts and intermittent flagging for construction equipment access to the worksite.
After the contractor relocates a private driveway access in early May, construction will begin on CO 94.
The first phase of CO 94 construction will move all traffic to the north in order to widen CO 94 in the eastbound direction. One lane in each direction will be provided through the work zone except for limited off-peak lane closures while the contractor places temporary barrier wall and lane striping between project phases. The posted speed limit will be reduced, and fines are double in the work zone. Temporary barrier wall will result in narrow travel lanes on CO 94.
