Crews to Resurface CO 167 in Fowler

CROWLEY AND PUEBLO COUNTIES — On Tuesday, April 23, CDOT will begin milling and paving operations on Colorado Highway 167 (at Main Street and Grant Avenue) in Fowler.

Milling and paving will take place on CO 167 from north of W Santa Fe Avenue at the railroad tracks to Fowler Jr./Sr. High School. Motorists should expect one-way alternating closures will be in effect until Friday, May 3, weather permitting.

This work will be split into three locations. At each location, crews will begin milling the northbound lanes on CO 167 and then will switch to the southbound lanes. After milling operations at each location, crews will begin paving.

  • Location 1: CO 167/W. Grant Avenue from Fowler Jr./Sr. High School to S Main St.

  • Location 2: CO 167/S. Main Street from W. Grant Avenue to US 50
