Intersection work to begin in DN

DEL NORTE – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Technology Constructors, Inc. (TCI) will begin work on Monday, April 30 at the intersection of US Highway (US) 160 and CO Highway (CO) 112. The location will receive new signalized lights and curb ramps in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).


Work at US 160 and CO 112 is scheduled to begin Monday, April 20 and expected last approximately six weeks.

Normal working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. In special cases these hours may be extended.

Weekend work also may occur if a need is determined and agreed upon.

During construction, pedestrians and motorized vehicles can expect sidewalk and one lane closures.

All motorized vehicles and pedestrians should expect travel impacts throughout the construction project.

The new signal stems from a region-wide intersection priority study that was conducted in 2014-15.  Local agencies nominated over 100 locations across Region 5 for the study.  The intersection of US 160 and CO 112 sees more than 7,000 vehicles per day. Due to the traffic volumes, the town of Del Norte, San Luis Valley Transportation Planning Region and CDOT included the US 160 and CO 112 intersection in the study.

“The study analysis determined this intersection eligible to receive safety funding to build a new traffic signal and fulfill CDOT’s continued commitment to better accessibility on state highways for all users,” said Constan.
