Colorado Asphalt Plant Projects
Our experience ranges from small, quick projects to complex, design-build projects.
State Highway 96
Kiewit’s award-winning SH 96 Project in Pueblo, Colorado, required coordinating construction activities to get the job done while limiting the impact to the local community.
State Highway 86
In 2019, Kiewit resurfaced 13.7 miles of State Highway 86 which included 3.8 miles of leveling and four bridge structures that needed rehab work.
Jackson Creek Parkway
In 2019, Kiewit was contracted to repair and widen an important section of Jackson Creek Parkway in Monument, CO. Kiewit used innovative surface mix enhancements and developed a paving process to greatly increase the strength and life of this pavement project.
At an altitude of 14,000 feet, Kiewit graded and paved 19 miles of difficult terrain to complete the Pike’s Peak Highway. A specialty high altitude mix was designed and produced by Kiewit to form the best quality road possible at this extreme elevation. Kiewit faced a difficult construction period while mitigating traffic and hauling all materials to the site.
Colorado Springs Airport
This project increased the capacity of 11 miles of I-25 through Colorado Springs, decreased congestion on the highway and improved safety, drainage, and water quality in the area. In recognition of outstanding effort and high quality, this project was awarded the 2015 Colorado Asphalt Pavement Association (CAPA) “Best in Colorado” award for a rural highway resurfacing project.
Kiewit rehabilitated Bennett Avenue through the heart of the city of Cripple Creek. This project improved drainage, sidewalks, utilities, and overall pedestrian access. Kiewit was careful to minimize the impact on the surrounding businesses and casinos as pedestrian traffic is the lifeblood of the city.
Kiewit paved 13 miles of thin lift overlay on Highway 86, west of Limon making a 70-mile haul for the materials. This project was challenging due to late season paving and multiple interchanges.
Building Colorado by constructing innovative, quality infrastructure solutions to improve the communities in which we live and work. We are thankful for our strong partnership with clients such as the City of Victor, as well as the residents and business owners whose teamwork makes these projects possible.
Kiewit has recently completed a project for the City of Fountain, Duckwood Road Crossing. This project included drainage, embankment, concrete flatwork, train signalization, aggregate base course and asphalt paving.
