Laying down the tar, baby

       Workers from Schmidt Con-struction lay new pavement on westbound Highway 24 between 26th and 31st streets this week. The project, which started in early June, is scheduled to have its major paving done by July 20. Finish-up work, including handicapped ramps at the 21st and 31st street intersections, should be in place by Aug. 6, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.
