CDOT to Resurface Section of US 550 North of NM State Line Next Week

July 14, 2011 - Southwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 5 - LA PLATA COUNTY – Next week, Colorado Department of Transportation maintenance crews will resurface a six-mile section of US 550 north of the New Mexico State line. The asphalt overlay will be done between mile markers 4 and 10.

From Monday through Wednesday (July 18 through 20), weather permitting, crews will be directing single-lane, alternating traffic through the work zone from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM. Motorists can expect delays of about 10 minutes, depending upon traffic queues. Please plan additional time for the morning commute.

For information about other CDOT projects statewide, the public may call 511 or log on to CDOT’s traveler information web site at www.cotrip.org. Better yet, all media and public are encouraged to sign up for FREE e-mail or wireless updates on road conditions and closures in any chosen area. It’s the best and quickest way to learn about highway impacts.

Thanks for going “Slow for the Cone Zone!”
