US 160/550 Pavement Striping S Durango

Project Facts

  • Cost: $1 million
  • Contractor: Roadsafe Traffic Systems of Englewood
  • Timeline: September - mid-October 2019
  • Location: On U.S. Highway 160/550 in Durango

In September 2019 crews will re-stripe faded pavement markings on U.S. Highway 160/550 in Durango. The two and half mile stretch of highway is located from approximately the Double Tree Hotel to the high bridge over the Animas River. The contractor selected for this $1million project is Roadsafe Traffic Systems of Englewood. 

As part of CDOT’s Whole System — Whole Safety initiative, this re-striping project will replace and enhance highway striping and markings, providing a safer roadway and highway system for the traveling public. Simple but important features like fresh, new, bright stripes can improve visibility and help drivers stay in their lane and on the road.

Traffic Impacts

Re-striping operations will start on Monday, September 30 and will continue through mid-October. The work is weather dependent.

Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Drivers will experience single-lane closures and lane shifts throughout the duration of the two-week project. Lane closures will be directed by flaggers. The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph within the work zone and will be strictly enforced. Traffic fines will be doubled in the work zone. Motorists should slow down, drive with caution and give themselves extra travel time. 

Travelers should be aware of an additional project occurring at this time. CDOT is also performing bridge maintenance work at the US 160/550 high bridge just south of Bodo Park. Motorists may consider the alternate route via Highway 3.
