The Colorado Department of Transportation and Simon Contractors will close the east side of intersection US 85 in Eaton at Collins Street Friday, June 9, at 6 p.m. until the morning of Monday, June 12, at 8 a.m. The closure will only affect Collins Street traffic.

Motorists traveling on Collins Street will be detoured around the closure. Motorists north and south on US 85 will not be impacted.

Why is the Project Being Done?

The purpose of the closures is to remove existing concrete and replace with new concrete in order to provide a smooth driving surface for improved durability.

A 10-foot width restriction is in place for the duration of the project. Speeds will be reduced to 25 mph in the active work zone. Please plan additional travel time for the detour.
