Project Update: August 25
As of Thursday, August 24, both the northbound and southbound portions of CO 257 at the intersection of Eastman Park Dr. are open. Same goes for CDOT’s floodplain closure. Following the reopening of CO 257, the Town of Windsor will focus on paving Eastman Park Dr. between Cornerstone Dr. and CO 257, coordinating the Railroad signal and safe crossing installation, and installing traffic signal poles at the intersection for the east/west portion to reopen.
Before the traffic signal poles can be installed, there is a couple weeks’ worth of wiring, on-site assembly and preparation that has to go into the street corners so they can stand up on their own. The town also has to coordinate with the railroad so their crossing signals are in sync with the new traffic lights. While the details are still being worked out logistically, the town is aiming for an October intersection reopening. Text Roads to 970-251-7151 to receive traffic alerts.
Then, starting Tuesday, Sept. 5, CDOT is going to fully close a portion of CO 257 south of Crossroads Blvd. for 20 days for bridge repairs. We mentioned this closure at the beginning of this project, so we hope it’s not catching you off guard. If it is, you can find more information about their road work at or text 257 to 866-762-3640.
All road work is weather permitting and subject to change.
