Highway 287 Closed Next Week for Railroad Repairs

October 16, 2014 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - BACA COUNTY – U.S. 287 will be closed just north of the town of Campo on Monday, Oct. 20, for railroad crossing work.

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is closing a 3.1-mile segment of the highway to allow the BNSF Railroad to resurface its crossing to better match the roadway surface and, in turn, provide a smoother ride for vehicles crossing the tracks.

Beginning at 8 a.m., all traffic will detour around the closure via Baca County roads J, 26, and M.  The highway closure and detour will remain in place until mid-afternoon Monday.

Traffic information about this or other CDOT projects is on the cotrip.org website, by calling 511 or via subscription e-mail.  To subscribe, please visit www.coloradodot.info and click on the cell-phone icon in the upper right-hand corner.  The link takes you to a list of items you can subscribe to, including Southeast Colorado (Everything East of I-25 and South of I-70).
