Ef­fort is on to sal­vage road­side me­mo­ri­als in Com­merce City.

Fam­i­lies who have placed road­side me­mo­ri­als on Colorado 2 in Com­merce City are be­ing asked to re­move them as a project that is slated to widen the road from two to four lanes be­tween East 72nd Av­enue and In­ter­state 76 in­ten­si­fies.

The city is ask­ing peo­ple to re­move the items as soon as pos­si­ble but will do so it­self and store the me­mo­ri­als for three months if no one comes for them. There are nine vis­i­ble road­side me­mo­ri­als on Colorado 2 in the area where the work is be­ing done. The project started in Oc­to­ber.

For fam­i­lies with a for­mal Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion me­mo­rial sign, con­tact the agency at 303757-9662 for as­sis­tance. For me­mo­ri­als that are re­moved and stored, fam­i­lies can call 303-239-6757 to ar­range to pick up these items by March 12.

The Colorado 2 widen­ing project is ex­pected to be fin­ished in 2018.
