Park County Public Works Update: Notice of Road Improvement Projects

PW Summer Road Projects

Park County, CO – Park County Public Works has several upcoming road maintenance projects designed to extend the lifespan of more than three miles of Park County’s roads. The projects may create minor traffic delays and the public is asked to please use caution and slow down while crews complete these essential repairs.

The following county roads will be impacted in the coming weeks:

  • County Road 32 preparations underway with the project beginning mid-June; and, 
  • County Road 68 preparations underway with the project starting at the beginning of July.

Please expect a pilot car, flaggers and short delays from 6 AM – 5 PM Monday through Thursday during this time. Weather permitting, the projects are expected to last a total of two to four weeks and will be completed by the end of July.

Public Works will be using a “chip seal” process, whereby crews will patch and then spray liquid asphalt emulsion on the roadway and immediately cover the surface with fine stone. Rubber tired rollers then push the stone into the asphalt emulsion. Once the stone adheres to the asphalt emulsion, the loose stone will be swept away and the roadway lane markings repainted.

Each year, the Department of Public Works goal is lay a minimum of two miles of new chip seal and overlay a minimum of four miles of existing chip seal across Park County roadways.
