US 550–US 160 Connection South Project

About the Project

This project will realign U.S. Highway 550 directly into the existing US 160 interchange (at Grandview and Three Springs), eliminating the current U.S. 550 Farmington Hill with its steep grade and curvy alignment, greatly improving roadway geometry.

The project will link U.S. 550 to U.S. Highway 160, and is part of long-range planning to enhance transportation for southwest Colorado. The connection is a key component for future growth providing mobility, safety, economic vitality and connectivity for the entire Four Corners area and all communities within this region which continue to experience substantial growth.
