The mild fall weather is helping construction crews stay on schedule as they work on improvements to Colorado Highway 131 between Steamboat Springs and Oak Creek. CDOT officials said to expect 10-minute delays between mile markers 55 and 58 near the entrance to Oak Creek Canyon where the road has been reduced to one lane.
