ONE LANE OF US 24 TENNESSEE PASS TO OPEN EARLY NEXT WEEK

Repairs on schedule to finish in early August

EAGLE/LAKE COUNTIES — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will open one lane of US 24 to alternating traffic beginning early next week. The exact date of the lane opening depends on the work that is completed this coming weekend, and CDOT will be sure to alert motorists as soon as they can use the highway next week.
“The project to fill the sinkhole is going extremely well,” said CDOT Program Engineer Joe Elsen. “Hayward Baker, the contractor, is working seven days a week for 18 hours each day to keep the project progressing on schedule, and by opening one lane of the highway to motorists, we will be able to alleviate some of the impact that has been felt by the community for the past few weeks.”
Both lanes of US 24 will not be fully opened until repairs are complete the week of Monday, August 6 as repairs are continuing at this time. At this time, the repairs are scheduled to be completed before the USA Pro Challenge plans to go through the area, barring any changes based on weather, natural disasters, and other unforeseen circumstances.

: Ashley Mohr, (303) 757-9437 Stacey Stegman, (303) 757-9362

STATEWIDE — In coordination with the USA Pro Challenge, the Colorado State Patrol (CSP), and other state entities, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has prepared traveler impact information for motorists during what may be the largest spectator event in Colorado history. 
From Monday, August 20 through Sunday, August 26, the 2012 USA Pro Challenge will bring the world’s top cyclists and their fans to the state. The race will impact numerous highways and in order to prepare motorists, CDOT has posted details on its traveler information website at http://www.cotrip.org/content/usapcc/.
The site contains information for motorists regarding highway closures, delays, oversize/overweight restrictions, and suggested alternative routes. There are also links to host cities’ websites where local road closure information can be found, links to long-term parking information, and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs). The times for delays and closures are estimates and may be subject to change depending on the pace of the riders, weather, and other unforeseen circumstances.
For real-time information related to highway impacts, motorists are encouraged to sign up for CDOT’s email and text alerts, available at www.coloradodot.info by clicking on the green cell phone icon, and are encouraged to follow CDOT on Twitter (@coloradodot). Daily road closure information during the event will be available by calling 511 from anywhere in the state or by visiting www.cotrip.org.
