US 491 Cortez North

Project Team

  • Contractor(s): Old Castle Construction

From May to late November 2017, crews on this project will resurface a 9-mile stretch of US Highway 491 north of Cortez—from County Road 25 (Lebanon Road) north to CO Highway 184 (mile points 27.3 to 36.1).

Work includes:

  • recycling the top layer of asphalt to address surface cracks and imperfections;
  • applying new asphalt;
  • upgrading guardrail on CO 184, near Narraguinnep Reservoir; and
  • signing and striping.

Travelers can expect some single lane closures and delays from 7 am to 7 pm, Monday through Friday. Some Saturday work is possible. All business access will remain open but may be temporarily altered.
