Highway 24 Business Fully Reopened
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) reopened westbound U.S. 24 Business (Manitou Avenue) from mainline Highway 24 to Serpentine Drive. On Memorial Day, rocks had fallen in the eastbound lanes resulting in a closure of both lanes. Eastbound had reopened on May 28.
This ½ mile segment of westbound Highway 24 Business had been kept closed after cracks were discovered in the westbound lane of the roadway last Thursday. CDOT engineers monitored the cracking on westbound Highway 24 Business last week and have determined that the road is stable and safe to reopen. The area will continued to be monitored during heavy rain storms.
This segment of U.S. 24 Business is a low-use roadway, with an average daily traffic count of 1,500 vehicles.
