LA PLATA & SAN JUAN COUNTIES—Crews this week finished replacing 1,400 signs and signposts along three highways in Ssouthwest Colorado—several weeks ahead of schedule.

The project consisted of removing and replacing sign panels and, where needed, damaged signposts and bases at various locations along US Highways 550 and 160, as well as Colorado Highway 140 in La Plata and San Juan counties. Specifically, sign replacement was underway along the following sections of highway:

  • US 550, between Durango (near west junction with US 160, MP 21) and Silverton (MP 70);
  • US 550, between New Mexico border to the east intersection with US 160;
  • US 160, between mile point 79 (four miles west of Durango) and mile point 88 (at the east intersection with US 550, or Farmington Hill); and
  • CO 140, between the New Mexico border and intersection of US 160

This highway sign replacement project was contracted to Work Zone Traffic Control for $260,000.
