Crews to Repair Culvert on CO 145 North of Cortez

Nov. 30, 2017 -

From 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 4 through Friday, Dec. 8, crews will repair a culvert on Colorado Highway 145, in Cortez.

Specific work includes repairing and re-lininging the culvert, which will require excavating the shoulder of the road. The work will take place mostly on the roadside. However, because workers will be close to highway traffic, crews will reduce the speed limit to 40 mph at the work zone and will remain in place all week.

Work will take place on CO 145 just north of US 160 in Cortez, between mile points 1 and 2.

Travel Impacts

Motorists may encounter intermittent lane shifts, closures and brief traffic stops of 15 to 20 minutes. Please obey signage and the 40 mph speed reduction. Please also be aware of signage, flaggers, maintenance workers, and heavy equipment on and along the highway.
