Traffic Alert From CDOT

Structural and Drainage Repairs on Four Bridges Along US Highway 285

JEFFERSON COUNTY - On March 25, the Colorado Department of Transportation and ABCO Contracting, Inc. began repairs to four bridges located on US Highway 285 from Mile Post (MP) 235 to MP 239.

The crew will repair the bridge decks as well as drainage in the medians. Work is expected to take place until late July 2019. During this time, single-lane closures will occur Monday-Friday on southbound US 285 and northbound US 285 at the following times:

March-May

Southbound US 285 single-lane closure: 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Northbound US 285 single-lane closure: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

June-July

Southbound US 285 single-lane closure: 6 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Northbound US 285 single-lane closure: 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

When the road closures are in place, the speed limit will be reduced to 45 miles per hour. As a result, slight delays are expected. The repairs done at this time will preserve each bridge’s structure as well as extend their lifespan by improving drainage.

The four bridges are located at:

South Turkey Creek Road and US 285
Conifer Road and US 285
Pleasant Park Road and US 285*
Kennedy Gulch Road and US 285
Currently the mitigation of bird nests has been successfully completed prior to the arrival of the migratory birds.

*On the Pleasant Park Road bridge (and only this bridge), wall repairs will also take place. These repairs include removing and replacing portions of the structure wingwall.

Necessary work and at least CDOT is attempting to minimize the impact to commute times.
