Travel Advisory

PUEBLO COUNTY—From 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 5 and Thursday, July 6, crews will reduce eastbound US 50 at Pueblo Boulevard (Colorado Highway 45) to one lane as they place concrete barriers. Motorists should expect and plan for delays, especially during the morning and afternoon commutes.

"The barriers will be put in place for the protection of both the public and workers," said Project Engineer Steve Spera. Motorists will still be able to travel through the area and are asked to use caution when driving through the construction zone.

Other Traffic Impacts
