Drivers reporting rock chip damage to their windshields due to road work
“A CDOT spokesperson told Denver7 that 15 people have called about their windshields cracking. There are signs on the road to remind drivers of the reduced speed limit at times, but Deiker said it doesn’t matter.

Rock chip damage to your windshield is supposed to be a random and unfortunate occurrence. That doesn’t appear to be the case in regards to this road construction project in Colorado. The use of loose gravel during the repair phase has caused some major headaches for drivers on Highway 86. Even when obeying signs to reduce speeds and increase the distance from vehicles ahead, the damage to windshields is still happening.
To their credit, Colorado’s Department of Transportation does have a hotline for filing a claim. If your windshield has suffered damage from flying debris or rocks, it is worth it to see if you can also file a claim. If the chip is small enough, our team at Advantage Auto Glass might be able to repair your current windshield. Call us at 612-343-8984 for more details on our services.
