Colorado Highway 13 project starts Monday
A reconstruction project on Colorado Highway 13 begins Monday on a stretch of the highway south of Meeker and north of Rifle. The work will take place from mile marker 25 south to mile marker 22. The project will widen the road's shoulders to 8 feet, add guardrails and new drainage pipes, and increase sight distance for motorists, according to a news release from the Colorado Department of Transportation.
The work will take place between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays through the end of October. No detours are planned, and motorists can expect to encounter alternating lanes of traffic and delays as many as 15 minutes. The speed limit will be reduced to 35 mph in the work zone, and loads of more than 14 feet won't be allowed.
The $6.7 million project is funded by the state's FASTER legislation. The contractor on the project is Old Castle United Companies. For more information, call the project hotline at 970-878-7107 or email SH13meeker@publicinfoteam.com.
