About the Project:

Beginning in late July, The Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor partner, APC Construction, will begin work on the US 6 Clear Creek Canyon Resurfacing and Safety Improvements project. This project will greatly improve the safety and driving conditions on this 11.37-mile stretch of US 6 by:

  • Resurfacing the entire project zone to address the severe deterioration of the pavement, leading to a smoother and safer driving experience.
  • Minor widening of the shoulders for added safety.
  • 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.
