CDOT announced Thursday it will be beginning another infrastructure project on Highway 50 in Pueblo and Fremont counties starting in August.

Fremont and Pueblo residents can expect delays as drivers will have to deal with various single-lane closures and single-turn lane closures.

The work is expected to be completed this fall and will see the replacement of traffic signals and radar detection devices at 19 intersections.

The project will begin in Pueblo on US 50 and Elizabeth st, move west making its way through Canon City finishing back at I-25.

The exact mile points for the project are 307.00 to 314.60 and MP 278.21 to 286.00. See the map below.
