US 160 McCabe Creek Culvert Replacement in Pagosa Springs

About the Project

As record rainfall continues to fall in the 20-square-mile drainage basin located in the mountains north of Pagosa Springs it prevents work from being completed until the culverts can dry out and allow crews to work in the area to finish the project. The original project completion date was the end of September 2022. Weather permitting, crews are planning for the project to be completed by Spring 2023.

Work Schedule

  • Work in the corridor will begin August 2, 2021 and is expected to be completed by September, 2022
  • Working hours during the day will be from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday

Traffic Impacts

  • All motorized vehicles should expect some travel impacts throughout the construction of this project.
  • Motorists are urged to obey speed reductions and watch for construction personnel and equipment in the work zone.
  • Crews at the US 160 McCabe Creek project successfully placed concrete barriers on the north side of the road. By doing this shift, its allowing crews to start full time work on the upgrades of the culvert system under US 160.
  • Eastbound and westbound traffic will be limited to one lane in both directions
