Highway 9 construction means delays this week

The Colorado Department of Transportation began a safety and improvements project this month on the 11-mile segment of State Highway 9 between Kremmling and Silverthorne. The work is expected to last until mid-July 2017, according to a press release from CDOT.

Work hours this week are from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The estimated delay time through the project is between 15 and 25 minutes. Call the public information team for the most up-to-date information about delays.

For this week:

■ Monday through Friday between mileposts 135 and 137 on Highway 9, there will be lane closures both northbound and southbound with alternating traffic for excavation and embankment.

■ Monday through Friday between mileposts 131 and 137 on Highway 9, there will be a shoulder closure for topsoil removal, surveying and removing/installing fence.

■ Thursday and Friday between mileposts 131 and 133, there will be lane closures for pipe work.

■ Please use caution and stay alert while traveling through the construction zone, as there are trucks entering and leaving the highway. Follow flaggers’ directions and reduced posted speed limits. 
If you have questions or would like to receive updates on the project, call the public information team at 970-724-4724 or email
