Derek Szysmanski and his team wrapped up the Region 1 Sign job earlier this month. The job entailed removal and install replacements on US 285 between Pine Junction and Morrison in Jefferson County. The work certainly had its challenges with blizzards and temperatures ranging from 36 to 99 degrees throughout the life of the job. The team worked through difficult conditions during certain phases of the project. CDOT’s fiscal year ends on June 30th and though the weather put us behind schedule, not finishing the project was not an option. Ben, Ted and some other team members banded together to make a second crew and helped Derek and his team finish the project on time. Team work is what made completion of the project possible. We appreciate everyone’s hard work on the project. Thanks to all the crew that helped with this project:
