Road work

2013 Garfield County road projects overview

The Garfield County Road and Bridge Department’s maintenance improvement plans for 2013 consist of 15.8 miles of asphalt and chip seal projects. The estimated cost of these projects is $3,654,000.

In addition to the overlay projects, county road and bridge crews are focusing on road drainage improvements, as well as bridge inspections to be completed this year.

These projects were prioritized and approved by the Garfield County Board of County Commissioners, based on road condition primarily, with the considerations of safety issues, budget, citizen requests, and traffic volumes included. Roads are important to the economy and for community access. The county maintains a five-year plan to assist in the guidance of determining when each road will be upgraded. By putting capital funds towards road improvements, the county is investing in a vital part of Garfield County’s infrastructure.

We’ve put together a project update page here to let you know which roadways have active crews in progress, how far they’ve gotten to date, alternative routes, and best estimates to project completions. Check back weekly to see how projects are progressing, and to avoid unnecessary delays.
