Palisade Curve on I-70 To Undergo Changes

Palisade Curve on I-70 May Undergo Changes

For years the sharp curves on I-70 alongside Palisade has been a source of rollover accidents and CDOT is looking to change that.

The project is currently in the planning stages as they look for funding, but with the stretch of highway as it is now, CDOT would like more people to be aware of the issue, and to also know it is being addressed, at least from a planning standpoint. CDOT is currently accepting design ideas for the project

The 45 MPH curve and 6-foot shoulder, between mile marker 42 and 46, make rollover accidents entirely too possible. Softening the curve would allow for vehicles to travel at a decent rate of speed without the fear of rolling over. Currently, they are performing an environmental impact study on the project as a precursor to gaining funding, and once this is completed and the project gets the go-ahead, it will take around 5 years to complete, with 3 of those years being the construction phase. The project also includes bridge structure design and implementation.

CDOT would like to remind drivers to reduce their speed in the area, especially in inclement weather. Drive Safe!
