1204-05-72 USH 18/151 Iowa County – Weekly Construction Update


The week of September 16, 2019 the contractor began the surface lift of asphalt for westbound. With dry weather, they plan to complete paving the shoulder and intersections this week. 

Eastbound continues base patching from Pikes Peak to CTH ID.  This Saturday, September 21st, removal crews will begin work at 3am. This is due to the rain slowing production, and contractors working to make up some of this lost time.

For the week of September 23rd, anticipated work includes:

Work in the westbound lanes:

  • Left Lane will close and move daily for surface paving throughout the week
  • Additional work includes temporary pavement marking

 Work in the eastbound lanes:

  • Right/driving closed from Ridgevue to Pikes Peak, and CTH ID to E County Line
    • Sawing
    • Base patching

The speed limit is reduced to 55mph throughout the work zone both eastbound and westbound
