Travelers should expect minimal wait times during road improvements but could encounter up to 30-minute wait times, depending on traffic.

The southbound lane of CO 13 will be closed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Pilot cars will guide traffic through the work zone. Residents in the area will need to observe the pilot car operation and exit only in the direction that the pilot car is going.

Access to county roads and private driveways will be monitored by flaggers but will be open. Construction work hours will be 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Speeds will be reduced to 40 mph through the work zone. There will be a 10-foot width restriction in place at all times.

The CO 13 North of Craig Rehabilitation project began in June 2016 and is scheduled to be complete by mid-October. Project work on the highway begins at mile point (MP) 104 and extends approximately six miles to MP 98. Castle Rock Construction Company of Centennial, Colo., is the prime contractor on this project.

The project will involve road resurfacing, shouldering, replacement of guardrail, striping and culvert repairs on the bridge over Fortification Creek at milepost 100.6. The work will result in a smoother ride for travelers and a more durable road texture on the highway.
