- Removing and replacing all guardrail within the project limits.
- Cleaning culverts, removing loose rocks, and installing new signage and striping to meet current
Work will occur on US 6 between Colorado Highway (CO) 119 and the junction of CO 58 and 93 in Clear Creek Canyon. The project will take place for 11.37 miles along US 6 from mile point (MP) 260.23 to MP 271.60.
