Steamboat briefs for May 31


— CDOT repairing riverbank on U.S. 40 west of Steamboat

About a half-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 40 will have just one lane through Tuesday, as the Colorado Department of Transportation conducts emergency repair work to riverbanks eroded by high waters of the Yampa River. During the project, the eastbound lane of U.S. 40 will be closed, so motorists can expect single-lane alternating traffic each day between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. If possible, crews will try to open the eastbound lanes of U.S. 40 for a short period of time around the evening rush hour to clear traffic. Delays are expected, and alternate routes are advised.

CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all traffic signs and flaggers and to "Slow for the Cone Zone." All work should be complete by 6 p.m. Tuesday, weather permitting.

CDOT road repairs under way on Colo. 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.
