Kudos for Work on Red Mtn. Pass

Mary Maurer wrote the following to CDOT Region 5 Transportation Director Kerrie Neet:

I have always admired how CDOT maintains Hwy 550 over Red Mountain Pass between Ouray & Silverton. Now, I am in awe at the job that was completed last Friday from the rock fall near Engineer Pass. I have been making many trips back and forth between Montrose & Durango.  The road closure was not a problem.  I only had to wait a few minutes each time.  And, then, last Saturday, when I drove to Durango,  I was amazed at the quick completion of the removal of rocks, screening and the paving of the highway. It seems wider, or is it just my imagination because of having to traverse that narrow, one-lane part these last few months?
Thanks for a job well done!
