The Colorado Department of Transportation will be working along a one-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 160 between Durango and Bayfield next week. Crews will repair a guardrail near La Plata County Road 223, (mile points 97-98) approximately five miles west of Bayfield. The guardrail was damaged in a two-vehicle crash on May 24.
Beginning Monday through Thursday, June 4-7, drivers will encounter brief delays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Drivers should be prepared for stops of no longer than 15 minutes and one-lane alternating traffic guided by flaggers.
The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph in the work zone and strictly enforced. CDOT urges drivers to slow down and be aware of workers and equipment on the roadway.
