DURANGO – On Tuesday, October 5, the Colorado Department of Transportation Maintenance division will begin a project to improve the roadway surface on US 160/550 south of Durango. The work zone includes the section of highway that lies between two recently completed projects (the concrete resurfacing project through Bodo and the Grandview 4th Lane project). The work zone is from milepost 85 (near the “high bridge” by WalMart) through mile post 88 (near the signal at Farmington Hill). CDOT Maintenance has contracted this project to Four Corners Materials for $1.98 million.

During the project, scheduled for completion by November 15, crews will mill the existing asphalt surface, place new asphalt, make bridge improvements including expansion joint repairs at each end and installation of a waterproof membrane on the deck.


DAYTIME: Work hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM and from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM for mainline paving (on US 160/550).

NIGHTTIME: For pavement milling operations, crews will work at night, are Monday through Friday from 6:00 PM to 5:00 AM. Paving through three US 160/550 intersections (at SH 3, Dominguez Drive and River Road) will also occur during this time.
