CDOT CO 17 Chip Seal Project Starts July 19

SAGUACHE COUNTY—The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will perform a two-day chipseal project on Colorado Highway (CO) 17 on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 19 and 20. The work will take place on a five-mile stretch of CO 17—from mile points 105.5 to 110—just north of Moffat. The maintenance work will help improve and prolong the life of the roadway.

TRAVEL IMPACTS:

Motorists may encounter alternating, one-lane traffic during the project, with delays of up to 45 minutes. A pilot car will escort vehicles through the work zone.

Travelers are urged to:

  • Slow down—Higher speeds can cause loose stones to scatter, and damage vehicle paint and windshields.
  • Increase distance between vehicles—Space between you and other vehicles will help reduce damage caused by loose stones.
  • Follow work zone signage—Use caution and consider worker safety when traveling through a work zone.
