June 5, 2014 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - NORTHERN COLORADO — Blasting is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday and Friday on the Wyoming Department of Transportation’s project to widen US 287 to four lanes north of the Colorado border.

Travelers in both directions are advised to expect delays of up to 30 minutes during the blasting.

Blasting will be needed periodically as the project continues, and on those days it will be done at 10 a.m. and/or 3 p.m., resulting in delays at those times of up to 30 minutes.
