CDOT begins culvert project in the Redlands

Local News

MESA & GARFIELD COUNTIES, Colo. — Starting Dec. 10, the Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor Mountain Valley Contracting Inc. will implement minor culvert improvements on Colorado Highway 340 and Colorado Highway 139 to improve the flow of stormwater drainage. The work will improve the flow of stormwater drainage through two unnamed systems under CO 340 (Broadway). An improved drainage system has many important benefits, including safety and preventing flooding. The project is expected to continue through mid June.

Work is scheduled to begin Dec. 10, on CO 340 along Mile Points 11 and 12 (between Canary Ln. and Dressle Dr.). This location is west of downtown Grand Junction and near the Redlands Community Center.

PROJECT SCHEDULE

Work is scheduled to begin Dec. 10 and is expected to last until mid June. Normal working hours will be Monday through Friday from 7 A.M. to 5 P.M.
