CO 12 and CO 194 Bridge Preventative Maintenance

Work this Week

Nov. 28, 2021
  • Expect single lane closures both directions, east/west, Monday - Friday.

About the Project:

In late November, crews will begin bridge repairs at three locations along CO 12 and CO 194 in Bent, Las Animas and Otero counties. The project will protect the integrity of bridges by installing materials to absorb the force of the flowing water, thus increasing the lifespan of the structures, and improving their resistance to flood damage and erosion.
