DELTA & GUNNISON COUNTIES—
From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 7 and Wednesday, Aug. 8, CDOT will restrict vehicles wider than nine feet from traveling on a 1.5-mile stretch of CO 133 through the town of Somerset (mile points 17 through 18.5) as they continue paving the road.

Travel Impacts

  • Travel will be reduced to single-lane, alternating traffic intermittently between MP 17 and 18.5, through the community of Somerset.
  • Motorists can expect delays up to 20 minutes.
  • Pilot cars will escort traffic through the work zone.
  • During the nine-foot width traveling restriction, semi-trailers and other large vehicles are encouraged to choose an alternate route, or travel before or after posted work hours.

Local Detour for Somerset Residents

Tuesday, Aug. 7:

  • Crews will pave in the north/eastbound lane, with a pilot car and glaggers directed traffic on the south/westbound lanes.
  • The west end of King Road will be the first access point to be blocked. I twill be closed for about one hour and passable by the time crews move to 2nd Street (which ties into King Road and CO 133 at the Post Office).
  • Residents west of 2nd Street must enter and exit from the west end of King Road at this time with the help of flaggers.
  • The residents east of the Post Office—those on 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th streets—must enter and exit from 8th Street until 2nd Street is passable.
  • 9th Street may be blocked off for up to 1.5 hours until crews can get the west end of the loop open.

Wednesday, Aug. 8:

  • Crews will pave in the south/westbound lane.
  • A pilot car and flaggers will direct traffic in the north/eastbound lane.
  • Oxbow Mine and the residents across from 9th Street may be blocked for as many as 1.5 hours.

Flaggers will be at all intersections to guide travelers. Please be patient and allow some extra time to get to your destination.
