Work on Colorado Highway 14 (Poudre Canyon) is set to start next week, affecting traffic west of Ted’s Place. The purpose of this project is to make the road safer by installing guardrails and working on asphalt patching and pavement marking and signage.

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor Jalisco International will begin the safety and improvement project from mile points 102.3 to 116.5, west of the intersection with US 287.

Where is the the Project?

Work on this project will be divided in three different sites on Colorado Highway 14:

  • Site 1: from MP 102.3 to 105.8
  • Site 2: from MP 105.8 to 116.1
  • Site 3: from MP 116.1 to 116.5


Starting Monday, Sept. 11, motorists should be aware of traffic impacts during construction hours from MP 102.3 to 116.5, including:

  • Lane closures and lane shifts through the course of the project.
  • Motorists will be placed in a single-lane configuration with traffic flow switching between eastbound and westbound directions.
  • Flaggers will stop traffic for up to 10 minutes and then release queues.
  • Loads larger than 10-feet will be restricted.

Normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and the expected completion date is mid-November 2017. The project is expected to cost $556,584.
