Project Complete!

The Colorado Department of Transportation, in cooperation with United Companies, will begin work on CO Highway 141 at the north end of Naturita and move north towards Gateway for approximately 35 miles. This paving and roadway upgrade project will take place from mile point 61 to MP 95.75.

This project consists of roadway improvements including asphalt milling and paving, shouldering, upgrading guardrails, sign replacement, and culvert repair. The paving will create smoother roads and improved driving conditions, which in turn will improve safety for the traveling public along this corridor.
