Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018 11:05 AM

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor, Tricon 2, will install a new concrete box culvert on Colorado Highway 151, 13 miles east of Ignacio between mile posts 13-14 near Allison. The project will begin next week and continue through the end of November. One-lane alternating traffic flow will be required to allow for the removal of the old double culverts, installation of the new concrete box culvert, and paving of the roadway at the work site.

Beginning on Monday, Sept. 10, motorists will begin to encounter construction crews and an alternating one lane closure on CO 151. This one-lane closure will be in effect through the end of November. Traffic in the area and local residents will still have access on CO 151 via the temporary side road and single lane configuration with flaggers alternating the east and westbound traffic flow during working hours, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. A temporary traffic signal will facilitate this single lane traffic flow at night.

Travelers are urged to:

Obey speed reductions of 35 MPH; fines are doubled in the work zone.Obey the oversized restrictions of 12-foot width. Motorists are urged to use caution. Please consider the safety of motorists and of the construction crews when traveling through the project construction zone.More information about this project is available at, the project hotline at (970) 691-5606. or via email at
