Spring/Summer Road Construction Updates

At the January 22, 2015, Northwest Transportation Planning Region meeting,  updates were provided on two projects that might impact Hayden residents, CO Hwy 9 and Hwy 40 – Berthoud Pass.  Starting as early as April 2015 improvements to Hwy 9 will begin.  This project is scheduled to take three construction seasons, e.g. through 2017; however, the contractor is trying to move the project start in 2015 from July to April and only impact travelers for two construction seasons.  At this time be prepared for traffic delays on Hwy 9 in 2015 – 2017.  The second project is for avalanche protection and road surface improvements on Berthoud Pass scheduled for the 2015 construction season.  This project is scheduled to begin when snow and weather conditions permit.

If you are heading to I-70 you may want to take CO Hwy 131 to avoid construction delays.

Summer CDOT Road Closure Update

CDOT will be making improvements on Hwy 9 this summer, beginnng in April, so travelers heading to I-70 should be aware of traffic delays.  CDOT will also be working on avalanche safety improvements and road surface improvements on Berthoud Pass (Hwy 40) this summer, beginning when snow and weather conditions allow.  CDOT posts updated construction information at: www.cotrip.org/roadConditions.htm

Travelers may want to use CO Hwy 131 to access I-70 to avoid travel delays.
