CDOT - New Project Announcement

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and contractor, ABCO Contracting of Denver, will begin repairing 12 bridges at the I-25/I-76 and I-25/I-70 interchanges on April 14. This repair project is designed to improve the structural integrity of the bridges at two of the state’s busiest interstate interchanges, maximize driver safety, and upgrade the city’s infrastructure to support economic growth.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION 
The project entails performing bridge deck repairs, replacing expansion devices and roadway panels, repairing damaged bridge rails, and applying a polyester concrete overlay to 9 structures for added strength and stability.
 
BACKGROUND
Construction to connect I-76 with I-25 began in late 1987. I-76 between I-25 and I-70 was built in conjunction with the reconstruction of the Mousetrap (I-25/I-70 interchange) from 1987 to 1993. Various segments, bridges, and improvements to the interchanges’ capacity and structure have been made since then to support population growth in the metro area. Bridge deck replacement and structural repair projects such as this one are vital to the metro area’s economic growth and safety of the traveling public.
 
PROJECT LOCATION
Repairs will be performed on twelve structures at various site locations from MP 005.62 to MP 274.011 on I-25 and I-76 (see image and table), and at one location on I-25 and I-70 in Adams and Denver County.
