2019 Street Paving Project - 66th Avenue West of Broadway
In mid-March 2019, Adams County, along with its contractor Martin Marietta Materials, will begin a $457,000-dollar roadway resurfacing and drainage improvement project on West 66th Avenue and Delaware Street, West of Broadway. Work includes full depth reconstruction, asphalt repaving, dirt excavation and stronger embankment, new signage, and new pavement striping. A complete road closure between Delaware Way and Broadway will be in effect for three weeks in the spring.
Due to a failing section of roadway on West 66th Avenue, there is an opportunity to repair the roadway, improve drainage and safety, and make the roadway more structurally sound. The north side of the road was built over non-solid materials, and the asphalt underneath now requires upgrading. Motorists and businesses will experience a better road that will be more level, solid, and last longer.
Schedule and Timing
This resurfacing and drainage improvement project is scheduled to begin in mid- March and is planned for completion in June 2019.
Working hours will be Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. During these times, it may be necessary to place traffic control signs and devices on or near Broadway Street, Delaware Way, and W. 64th Avenue. No work is planned on weekends or during state of Colorado holidays.
Planned Closure of W. 66th
Starting March 18, W. 66th Avenue, between Broadway and Delaware Street, will be closed for three weeks. The closure will be in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A signed detour will be in place to guide motorists around the construction work zone. The detour routes are usable by large trucks. Please plan additional time in your commute through the area.

2018 Street Paving Project
Paving operations have wrapped up for 2018!
The 2018 Street Paving Project included significant street maintenance in five different areas of Adams County, with a majority of work in Thornton and Brighton. Over 32 miles of selected streets in these areas were identified as priorities for repair. The program also included over 105 locations of concrete sidewalk repairs, curb, gutter and ADA ramp repairs. The project improved the smoothness of the streets, reducing potholes and cracks in the sidewalks.
