Xcel Energy Tungsten to Bobtail Natural Gas Project
Road Closures and Project Updates

CDOT is planning reconstruction of Hwy. 72 between Plainview Road (MM12.3) and Pinecliffe  The project is expected to run 195 days with completion sometime in 2020.  Construction will occur Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.


TRAVEL IMPACTS

Construction will impact all motorized and non-motorized traffic. Travel restrictions are necessary through the entire work zone between Plainview Road, which is approximately 1.7 miles west of CO 93 in Jefferson County, and Pinecliffe in Boulder and Gilpin counties. At several locations, CO 72 will be reduced to a single-lane, with alternating traffic controlled by both automated signals and daily flagging operations. Bicyclists will not be allowed to travel through the work zone due to a limited road width under the single lane configuration and to prevent travel against the flow of traffic controlled by the temporary traffic signals. Uneven or gravel road surfaces may exist.

All traffic restriction schedules, updates, and lane closures will be posted on COTrip.org. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this permanent repair project is critical to upgrading this section of the CO 72 corridor that is susceptible to floods. Additional project information is available at www.codot.gov/projects/floodrelatedprojects/co-72-coal-creek-canyon-1.
