Chip Seal Project Planned for the Four Corners, from US 160 to Utah State Line

MONTEZUMA COUNTY—On Monday, April 3, CDOT and contractors Oldcastle Southwest Group and Four Corners Materials will begin a surface treatment project on Colorado Highway (CO) 41 near the Four Corners area.

The two-month project will extend from the US Highway 160 to the CO 41 junction, and will continue on CO 41 for approximately nine and a half miles to the Utah state line. Construction will include an asphalt-leveling course, followed by a double chip seal surface treatment of the roadway.

Other work:

  • Fresh highway striping
  • Installation of new guardrails in some areas along CO 41

The maintenance work will help improve and prolong the life of the roadway. The project is expected to be completed before Memorial Day weekend, at the end of May.

Travel Impacts

  • Expect single-lane, alternating traffic through the work zone.
  • Traffic will be controlled with flaggers and a pilot lead vehicle. 
  • Motorists should expect 15-minute delays, while oversized loads may encounter additional delays.
  • Work will be done from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • Please adhere to posted speed limits and speed reductions throughout 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.

NOTE: Construction crews will not work on the CO 41 roadway on Friday, May 5 to allow the public to participate in the annual Four Corners Walk from Aneth, Utah, to the Four Corners Monument.
