Full closure of US 50 in Delta scheduled for September 18-22

September 4, 2015 - Northwestern Colorado/ CDOT Region 3 - Critical work on railroad crossing being performed

DELTA COUNTY —Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) crews will be working with a specialty unit of the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) to perform much needed repair work to rails that run on US 50 in Delta. The closure is expected to last five days.

The UPRR will be removing track, grading the ballast, installing the new concrete crossing panels then relaying and testing the track.  CDOT crews will then repave the highway on either side of the railroad crossing. A detour will be maintained through the work closing US 50 north of the First and Main intersection and south of the City Market and Ute Street intersection.  Local business access will be maintained.

TRAFFIC IMPACTS: The Delta Alternate Truck Route will serve as the detour (please see maps below).
