Weekly Construction Update
Each week during construction season, we'll be updating this page with information about the progress on our construction projects. Offseason updates (November-March) will be less frequent due to less activity.
I-25 and SH-52 Acceleration Lane
8/26/19 - Exit 235 from I-25 northbound onto SH 52 eastbound will be closed to truck traffic starting August 28. Any truck larger than a passenger truck will need to detour. Northbound trucks will detour onto Exit 232 at Erie and use the East I-25 Frontage Road (Weld County Road 9). The next exit available to trucks is Exit 240 (Firestone Blvd.) at CO-119.
7/23/19 - Construction started on July 22 on the acceleration lane from I-25 northbound onto SH 52 eastbound. Lane closures are in place to meet CDOT lane width requirements and secure the safety of the construction workers. The south side of the eastbound lane on HWY 52 and the east side of the I-25 northbound on ramp will have lane closures for the duration of the project. Expect traffic delays during peak commute times.
6/26/19 - The Federal Highway Safety Improvement program (HSIP) grant to improve the acceleration lane onto eastbound HWY 52 from I-25 is moving forward. A construction contract agreement with Duran Excavating was approved by the Board of Trustees. Per CDOT guidelines, lane closures during the construction of this project are only permitted at night. Construction is expected to begin in mid-July.
Pavement Management System
5/29/19 - Did you know the Town of Frederick maintains more than 96 miles of public streets? To manage this system, the Town Engineering Department and Public Works use a Pavement Management System to assist in evaluating the pavement condition, serviceable life and maintenance strategies for Town-owned roads and alleyways.
Check out the Pavement Management System page to read more about the methods used in pavement maintenance and rehabilitation.
10/16 - Striping is rescheduled for Saturday, October 18 for Aggregate Boulevard and Bella Rosa. This work was originally scheduled for October 5.
10/7/19 - Crack seal work is scheduled for the following areas: Carriage Hills II & Maplewood, Parkview Estates & Coalridge Estates and Morningside Estates & Indian Peaks Business Park. Work is ongoing throughout October. Maps are linked to each corresponding area highlighting streets with scheduled crack seal maintenance.

Colorado Blvd/SH-52 Intersection Widening
8/28/2019 - Southbound Colorado Blvd. will be closed during early evening hours for paving between Main St. (south entrance of the traffic circle) to SH 52 on Wednesday, August 28. Detour on Tipple Parkway going westbound to Silver Birch Boulevard or eastbound to Ridgeway Boulevard.
8/26/2019 - Southbound Colorado Blvd. will be closed mid-day for paving between Main St. (south entrance of the traffic circle) to SH 52 on Tuesday, August 27. Detour on Tipple Parkway going westbound to Silver Birch Boulevard or eastbound to Ridgeway Boulevard.
8/9/2019 - Opening of N. Colorado Blvd. The intersection at Colorado Highway 52 and North Colorado Boulevard (County Road 13) is now open to motorists, pedestrians and cyclists. A detour has been in place since the start of the intersection improvement project in February.
To date, crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation and Asphalt Specialties have completed widening of the road as well as constructing concrete islands. When fully completed this fall, travelers can expect a new signal and better accessibility for persons with disabilities. Final configuration for the new traffic light will happen in late September after crews finish shoulder improvements.
Night Work Starting Sunday, August 18 on CO 52
In order to stay on schedule and have fewer impacts on the traveling public, night work for milling and paving will take place starting Sunday, August 18 and go through August 22. Hours of operation will be from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. with one-lane closures possible.
