The striping operation will take place on Monday, October 23 from the north end of Bodo Park (La Plata County Road 210) to the south end of Bodo Park (Turner Drive). Painting of the lanes and pavement markings will be done on US 160 and on the frontage roads east and west of the highway corridor.   

HIGHWAY TRAVEL IMPACTS: On Monday, October 23 from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., motorists will encounter a slow moving operation of striping equipment and support vehicles on US 160 and frontage roads in and around the Bodo Park area.
