Atmos Energy Work Resumes Monday on Northbound Main at 18th Street in Durango

January 3, 2014 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Southwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 5 - According to Atmos, this final week of work will complete the project.

DURANGO – Motorists on US 550 (North Main Avenue) will encounter the final single-lane closure on northbound Main Avenue (US 550) at 18th Street, as Atmos Energy completes its work to upgrade utility lines under the roadway.

Starting this Monday, January 6, at 9 a.m., the outside (right) lane of northbound Main Avenue and the eastbound lane of 18th Street will be closed—24 hours a day—while Atmos removes and re-installs a concrete panel in order accomplish their work.

TRAFFIC BACK-UPS DURING PEAK TRAVEL - These lane restrictions will cause traffic back-ups on northbound Main. As a result, there will be back-ups on all roadways approaching northbound Main in this area, including Camino del Rio, Park Avenue and 14th, 15th and 18th streets. Motorists are encouraged to take alternate routes during the peak travel times, if possible, or drive courteously and allow approaching motorists the space to merge.

Thank you for going Slow for the Cone Zone!
