BV street construction

Construction work continues on the Buena Vista Enhancement Project along US 24 between Mill Street and Crossman Avenue. Activities include the installation of new concrete curb, gutter, utility conduits, sidewalks and other roadway features.  Cottonwood Avenue southbound at US 24 will continue to be closed due to safety repairs of the bridge. 

A partial winter shutdown of work may begin on Friday, December 9, with primary work resuming in March. Road closures and traffic control devices will remain in place throughout the winter, along with occasional work being conducted within specified project areas. A Public Information Meeting will be held at 5:30 PM on March 6th at the Buena Vista Community Center, with representatives from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and A&S Construction discussing the 2017 project work with the public.

100% of the curb and gutter installation on the west side of the project has been completed, as well as 100% of the sidewalk work. All electrical work has been completed, including caisson work for streetlight installations. All manholes and water valves have been adjusted in preparation for winter. On the east side, excavation has begun for the sidewalk that will stretch the length of US 24 between Main and Crossman.

Businesses along US 24 have maintained normal hours, but the regular driving pattern for accessing them has changed. Flaggers are helping traffic crossing US 24 at non-signalized intersections.

CDOT and A&S thank you for your patience as we work to improve the highway.
