CDOT is seeking to dispose of property near the US 160 and Three Springs Boulevard intersection

News Release

May 30, 2023 - Southwestern Colorado - A public meeting will be held on June 8 to discuss the sale of the property

La Plata County — The Colorado Department of Transportation will host a public meeting to discuss the disposal of property located on the northeast corner of US 160 and Three Springs Boulevard, approximately 4.4 miles southeast of downtown Durango. The public is invited to learn more about the sale and provide comment on Thursday, June 8 at 5:00 p.m. at the Durango Public Library.

CDOT experts intend to share detailed parcel information including traffic studies and the National Environmental Policy Act analysis on the property for sale.

Public Meeting Information

  • Date: Thursday, June 8, 2023
  • Time: 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • Location: 1900 E 3rd Ave, Durango Public Library Community Meeting Room 2

The parcel was obtained by CDOT as a protective buy in anticipation that the subject intersection would require reconstruction to an interchange to accommodate future traffic volumes and turning movements. The current intersection is signalized with dedicated acceleration-deceleration lanes as well as a two-way turn lane. Recent traffic-safety analysis indicates that an interchange will not be warranted in the near future, so the parcel is now considered excess property.
