US 160/550 Frontage Road (La Posta Road) Closure

September 6, 2013 - Southwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 5 - Mercury Village Highway Access Construction Continues – temporary road closure will cause no business access closures.

DURANGO – A section of the US 160/550 west-side frontage road will be closed for a period of three months while Mercury Payment System’s contractor, Okland Construction, constructs an underpass beneath US 160/550 that will connect the La Posta Road on the west side with the new Mercury Village Drive on the east side. This project is constructing highway access, as permitted by the Colorado Department of Transportation, to the new Mercury Village under construction in Bodo Industrial Park.

TRAVEL IMPACTS – To facilitate construction of the highway underpass—from September 12 to December 9—the contractor will be closing the US 160/550 west-side frontage road (also known as La Posta Road or CR 213) between West Turner Road and the entrance to the Durango Gun Club. West Turner Road (and access to Morehart) will remain open, as will access to the Gun Club from the south. Those wanting to get to the Gun Club can do so by taking River Road (at Home Depot) and traveling north on La Posta.
