Repairs continue on Colorado Highway 131
Work has resumed on Colorado Highway 131, south of U.S. Highway 40. The project will widen road shoulders to 8 feet, make minor improvements to the horizontal and vertical alignments, and remove and replace guardrail and fencing between mileposts 58.26 and 61.60, just south of Chokecherry Lane.
During the project, motorists can expect single-lane, alternating traffic from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, with some weekend work. Motorists can expect delays up to 10 minutes in various locations through the work zone.
For the first few weeks of the project, crews will be extending pipes on either side of the road, and motorists can expect a one-lane configuration during normal working hours.
Major work will begin in early June on the south end of the project with earthwork on both sides of the road, culvert replacement, and asphalt removal. Both lanes of traffic will be on a gravel-surfaced roadway at all times of the day through this portion of the project until final paving begins later in the summer.
Connell Resources of Steamboat Springs is the contractor for the $6.5 million project, scheduled for completion by the end of October.
