Sept. 20, 2018 -

ARCHULETA & MINERAL COUNTIES—From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, motorists can expect single-lane, alternating traffic and delays on US Highway 160 east of Pagosa Springs as crews continue paving the top mat of asphalt. Traffic will be impacted east of US 84, between mile points (MP) 149 and 154.

Travel Impacts

  • Work hours: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday (and some Saturdays, as necessary)
  • Expect periodic full lane closures and lengthy wait times of 15 to 30 minutes while this final top mat of paving is underway.
  • Driveways and side roads could be closed for 30 to 60 minutes after the asphalt is placed, to allow compaction.
  • Work zones are expected to be about 1.5 miles long.

This project will be completed in October.
