US 34/36 Estes Park Intersection Project Update
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will restart an intersection upgrade project in Estes Park on Wednesday, November 20, 2013. The project will improve the safety of the intersection by installing new traffic signals, new pedestrian cross walks and ADA compliant curb ramps. The old poles and signals were built in the 1960’s. They will be upgraded to current CDOT standards which will provide greater visibility for motorists.
Interface Communications is the contractor for this project.
Project Progress & Update
The first phase of the project began in May 2013. Work ceased for the summer to accommodate Estes Park’s busy tourist season, and due to severe flooding and extensive road damage surrounding the project in the September floods, the project was on hold for the past two months.
When Phase 2 of construction begins Wednesday, it will last about four weeks and will include the removal of existing traffic signal poles, digging to create potholes, installation of new traffic signal lights, electrical upgrades, and new directional signage. Construction will then stop for the winter and restart in early spring of 2014.
Working Hours & Impacts
Normal work hours will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Travelers can expect single lanes to be closed near and around the intersection. Pedestrian crosswalks impacted by construction will be clearly identified with a marked detour.
