Shaw Creek Rest Area Closed for the Week

February 17, 2018, SW COLORADO -- The Shaw Creek Rest Area will be closed for repairs next week.

The popular rest area is located on US Highway (US) 160 between South Fork and Del Norte at approximately mile point 191.5. The full closure of the rest area will take place from Monday through Friday, February 19-23.


“We’ll need to close the rest area completely for the entire week,” said Matt Wacker, CDOT Special Crews Supervisor. “Due to the extensive repair work required on the septic system, CDOT and a contracted crew will be required to dig open trenches through the area’s roadway and parking lot. We feel it would be best to have a complete closure for the safety of the public and the contractors.”
