The Colorado Dept. of Transportation selected on Sept. 23 four additional contracting teams to begin repairs on three major corridors as well as the highways east of I-25 that sustained damage during the floods. The goal is to complete temporary or permanent repairs to restore mobility on these state highway routes by December 1.

The first three contractors were selected among 14 proposals, and the S.H. 72 contractor was selected among five competitors. All four contractors will begin work by conducting a full assessment of the areas this week with the help of CDOT engineers and bridge inspectors.

The contracts are as follows:

•    U.S. 34 between Glade Road and Estes Park: Kiewit Infrastructure Co. of Littleton was selected to conduct temporary repairs for U.S. 34 through the Big Thompson Canyon.

•    State Highway 7 between Lyons and Estes Park: Skanska USA Civil West of Cortez and Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction of Draper, Utah, were selected to conduct temporary repairs on S.H. 7.
