About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation is starting back to work after the planned winter shutdown for the Highway surface treatment and upgrade project on CO 64 and US 40. During the 2021 construction season, crews worked on overlay on both roadways, pavement markings, and bringing guardrails up to new standards. 

Beginning the week of Monday, April 25, 2022, motorists can expect increased oversize/overweight truck traffic on these routes:

  • US-40 between Craig and Dinosaur
  • Deserado Mine Road
  • CO-64 between Rangely and Meeker

There will also be asphalt milling in and around the Town of Dinosaur. Watch for trucks, heavy equipment, and construction workers entering the roadway along Brontosaurus Boulevard.

Motorists should be especially cautious on CO 64 between mileposts 28 and 30, where trucks will be making wide turns onto the highway. Please drive at or below the posted speed limit. Pay close attention to "Trucks Turning Today" flashing message boards, which are updated daily.

Work Schedule

  • Daytime work hours range from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday
  • No night or weekend work
