Highway surface treatment upgrade for Rio Blanco County on CO 64 and in Moffat County on US 40
The Colorado Department of Transportation has begun a resurfacing project on US Highway 40 and Colorado Highway 64. The work being done on the two sections will address the distressed highway in rural Northwest Colorado. Roadways in the communities of Rangely and Dinosaur show severe cracking and are beginning to fail. Work along US 40 will take place in and near the community of Dinosaur, Mile Points 0 – 7. Work on CO 64 will be in and near Rangely, MP 20-28. Work will consist of overlay on both roadways, pavement markings bringing guardrails up to the new standards.
- Monday - Friday, July 12 - 16, from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., motorists can expect the eastbound shoulder closed on US 40 through the town of Dinosaur.
- Crews will be working on CO 64, so motorists can expect one-way traffic closures. There will also be survey crews throughout the corridor.
Anyone traveling this corridor can expect throughout the project:
- Lanes shifts of existing roadway alignment.
- Single-lane, alternating one-way traffic through the work zone.
- Flaggers will direct single-lane, alternating traffic.
- Width restrictions of 10 feet on CO 64 and 12 feet on US 40 will be in place 24 hours a day.
- Speed reductions will be in place of 35 mph during working hours.
