CO 141 between Naturita and Gateway to remain open

Travel Advisory

May 5, 2023 - Southwestern Colorado -

Southwest Colorado — The Colorado Department of Transportation plans to keep CO Highway 141 open at mile point 88.5 this Friday evening. A safety closure is no longer necessary with cooling temperature trends projected to continue throughout the weekend. The Dolores and San Miguel Rivers are not reaching the significant run-off levels predicted earlier this week.

CDOT will continue to closely monitor the river levels and the bridge structure at Roc Creek for the remainder of the peak flow season. Future closures may be required depending on warming temperatures and fluctuating run-off levels.
