El Jebel roundabout construction complete

Contact: Taylor Ryan, Engineer, 970-328-3560, taylor.ryan@eaglecounty.us

Nov. 16, 2017 – Construction of the El Jebel Road roundabout project is now complete.

Improvements included reconstruction of the El Jebel Road from Highway 82 north to Gillespie Drive and Lava Drive; construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of El Jebel Road and Shadowrock Drive; and installation of a raised median along El Jebel Road from Highway 82 to Shadowrock Drive.   

Work began in April and, due to a change in project phasing and utilization of a traffic detour, the roadway and roundabout were completed early and opened to traffic in August. Final installation of signage is anticipated by the end of November. 

Funding for the approximately $2.47 million project included $1.36 million from the Colorado Department of Transportation through a Hazard Elimination Safety Grant; $900,000 from Eagle County’s Road and Bridge Fund, Capital Improvement Fund, General Fund and road impact fees; and a private donation of $213,000 from Crawford Properties LLC.  

Construction was performed by Johnson Construction Inc. The project was managed by Eagle County Government, with support from Sopris Engineering. For more information, contact Taylor Ryan at 970-328-3560 or at taylor.ryan@eaglecounty.us.
