Southwest Road Work Complete


LA PLATA & OURAY COUNTIES—Crews have completed a $661,000 road work project that included installing rumble strips, applying protective coating to highways and striping at three separate locations in Southwest Colorado. The work started on May 30.

Work Completed

US Highway 550 (mile points 37.3 to 44.5), just north of Durango, from La Plata County Road 250 (north junction) to Electra Lake Road
This section of highway received a surface treatment, new lane striping and a new lane configuration. Residents of and visitors to the Rockwood Subdivision now have enhanced safety with a new southbound passing lane and a new southbound left-turn lane into the subdivision.

US Highway 550 (mile points 81 to 117.4), from Red Mountain Pass to Colona (Ouray-Montrose County line)
This stretch of highway received a new centerline rumble strip and new lane striping. Rumble strips are a roadway safety feature. Grooves are cut into the pavement which cause a vibration and rumbling sound to alert drivers that their vehicle has crossed the centerline.

Colorado Highway 62 (mile points 9.0 – 16.0), about seven miles west of Ridgway along the Dallas Divide
This stretch of CO 62 received a new centerline rumble strip and new lane striping. Rumble strips are a roadway safety feature. Grooves are cut into the pavement which cause a vibration and rumbling sound to alert drivers that their vehicle has crossed the centerline.
