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 up to 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.

Rotary Club sponsoring American flag project
The Rotary Club of Craig once again is sponsoring the American flag project to encourage community support for Craig and the United States of America. Interested businesses and community members are asked to sponsor flags that the Rotary Club then will display throughout town on Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4, Patriots Day (Sept. 11), Columbus Day and Veterans Day.
The flags are placed on light poles on both sides of Yampa Avenue from Fourth Street to Sixth Street. On Victory Way, the flags are placed on both sides of the street starting at Lincoln and then every 90 feet heading west. The number of flags that will be posted will depend on the number of sponsors. Last year, the Rotary Club placed 107 flags on both Yampa Avenue and Victory Way.
The Rotary Club says the flags are a great way to impress visitors driving through the area. The cost to purchase a flag and take part in the program is $75 per flag, per year. All sponsors will be recognized in the Craig Daily Press at the beginning and end of the flag year.
For more information or to sign up as a flag sponsor, call Randy Looper at 970-826-4444 or email email@example.com.
