Project Facts

  • Contractor(s): Acme Concrete Paving, of Spokane, Wash.

In early March 2017, crews will begin a project to rehabilitate the concrete surface of US Highways (US) 160 and 550 through Durango. The project will go through Durango's main business corridor, beginning at Tech Center Drive on US 160, just west of the US 160/550 intersection, and end at Animas View Drive (at 3800 Main Ave.) on US 550 north of Durango.

The project is expected to last approximately three months, with the intent of completing work by the latter part of May, in time for Memorial Day holiday weekend travel.
