TRAFFIC ADVISORY:  Intermittent traffic stops planned on US 40 in Craig through mid-July

July 5, 2017 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - Crews will install mast arms for the signal poles over traffic lanes

MOFFAT COUNTY/CRAIG – Starting tomorrow, July 6, motorists can expect intermittent traffic stops and delays as part of the US 40 Craig Traffic Replacement Project in Moffat County.  Travel impacts will continue through mid-July. The traffic stops are necessary for the safety of the traveling public, as crews begin installing traffic poles and mast arms in two intersections of US 40 (W Victory Way).  


Motorists need to prepare for delays of up to 15 minutes, with intermittent traffic stops on US 40. Crews will work on the road from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, following the schedule below:

  • July 6 - 8: work at the US 40 and CO 13 intersection and the US 40 and Finley Lane and Mack Lane intersection

  • July 10 - 13: work at the US 40 and Finley Lane and Mack Lane intersection; and the CO 13 (Yampa Avenue) and 6th Street intersection

No height or width restrictions will be in place. The speed limit will be maintained at the posted limits.


Crews are replacing outdated traffic signals, mast arms, traffic signal heads, and detection equipment at the intersections of US 40 and CO 13, US 40 and Finley Lane and Mack Lane, and CO 13 and 6th Street. The project will improve the safety of roadway for drivers and sidewalks for pedestrians.  

Work on this project is expected to continue through summer 2017.  Sturgeon Electric Company, Inc. is the contractor for this $1.1 million project.
