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.


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.
