CDOT Awards Highway Contracts To Repair Flooded Roadways [VIDEO]

As we reported earlier, CDOT will be spending its entire $100 million emergency fund to repair the roads and bridges damaged by the flooding here in Northern Colorado.  CDOT has recently announced that those contracts have been awarded to contractors and work will begin immediately. 

In addition to the $100 million CDOT will spend, the Federal Highway Administration has also kicked in another $35 million. Colorado’s Congressional delegation has also been told by the Federal Highway Administration’s that the $100 million cap on emergency funding will be lifted to allow for potentially $300-to-$500 million in emergency funding.

Mabey Inc., a company who builds temporary bridges has already brought bridge supplies in Greeley although they have not been selected as a subcontractor. The good thing about this fix is these bridges can be done in just a few days with a small crew and allow traffic to travel at 55 mph. The video below shows how their products work and the benefit to building temporary roads.

Here are the contractors who will be doing the road work:

  • U.S. 34 through the Big Thompson Canyon: Kiewit Infrastructure Co. of Littleton
  • State Highway 7 between Lyons and Estes Park: Skanska USA Civil West of Cortez and Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction of Draper, Utah
  • State Highway 72 in Coal Creek Canyon between State Highway 93 and State Highway 119: Lawrence Construction Co. of Littleton
  • East of I-25, including northeast Colorado: Lawrence Construction Co. and URS Corporation
  • U.S. 36 is being repaired by the National Guard and CDOT
