24-Hour, One-lane Closures on Southbound US 550 Expected

July 11, 2014 - Southwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 5 - DURANGO – CDOT and contractor Concrete Works of Colorado will continue replacing damaged concrete pavement on the through lanes of US 550, south of the CFI intersection.

The work will require one southbound lane to be closed, 24 hours a day to allow for the concrete to strengthen. Crews will also finalize curb, striping, signage and median work associated with the project.

Travel impacts for the week of Monday, July 14 through Friday, July 18:

  • Roosa Avenue: Expect northbound lane closures during daylight hours – there will be no left turns from eastbound US 160 onto Roosa Ave.
  • US 160 West: Median and single-lane closures for through lanes in both directions west of the US 160/550 intersection. Eastbound lane closures can occur from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., weekdays, and again after 6:30 p.m.; westbound lane closures can occur anytime.
  • US 550 (Camino del Rio) North of the US 160/550 Intersection: Limited lane closures from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., weekdays and again after 6:30 p.m.
