Motorists on Highway 82 near the main El Jebel intersection can expect delays and intermittent stops from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday, according to the Eagle County Engineering Department.
The delays will affect traffic eastbound and westbound between mile markers 17 and 19, according to the notice. Crews will have the right lanes closed in both directions and speed limits will be reduced.
Motorists should be prepared for delays of up to 15 minutes.
The side streets at the intersection will also be affected.
“Local traffic on the south side of El Jebel Road will have a right turn only option to access (Highway 82) and a detour will be in place on Valley Road,” the notice said.
Crews will be installing mast arms for new traffic signals, coordinating signals and paving. The work is part of the El Jebel Road improvement project overseen and largely funded by Eagle County.
