Road & Bridge


TOWN OF ELIZABETH ROAD CONSTRUCTION - Beginning July 5th, 2022 Legacy Circle (Walmart road) will be under construction for approximately 10 days.  Please drive slow and be cautious.  Please anticipate some delay en route.  This project will consist of approximately 2 days of milling and then starting the asphalt on the 7th, with at least a weeks worth of work.  Your patience is appreciated.  

TOWN OF ELBERT DRAINAGE PROJECT  - Beginning 3/21/2022 Elbert County Road & Bridge crew will begin an extensive drainage project in the Town of Elbert beginning the week of 3/21/2022, continuing through the end of the year. The first phase of work will be concentrated on CR 98 on the hill to the west of the south Elbert School entrance. Due to narrow ditch lines, equipment and crew activity will be staged on the shoulder of the road. Please slow down and be cautious of construction activity. Crews will be coordinating with Elbert School administration throughout the project so that school traffic is minimally effected.  March



REMINDER:  US 40 to close July 18, 2022 for 4 months, near Peoria and Deer Trail, for bridge replacement.                                                               

The Colorado Department of Transportation will replace four timber bridges on U.S. Highway 36 and US 40 between Strasburg and Agate starting this month. Full highway closures along these Interstate 70 frontage roads are necessary for bridge demolition and replacement.
