Project hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Drivers can expect delays up to 10 minutes as flaggers alternate traffic through the following locations:

  • Monday, June 23 – between mile 7 & 8 – near Beulah Cutoff (low speed segment – no speed reduction)
  • Tuesday, June 24 – between mile 18 & 19 – about 13 miles west of Pueblo (speed limit reduced to 40 mph)
