Traffic impacts can be expected northbound and southbound on Colorado Highway 9, Monday through Friday, during daylight hours, according to a news release.

A temporary lane will be in place detouring traffic around construction from mile marker 127 to 128. Speeds will be reduced to 25 miles per hour through the temporary lane. The temporary detour lane is necessary while crews install a wildlife underpass structure, and will remain in place until underpass construction is complete.

Motorists can expect one lane of alternating traffic and delays as long as 45 minutes through the construction zone. Flaggers will be in place at each access road and will work to accommodate both highway and residential traffic. Wide loads are restricted to 12 feet.

Motorists, cyclists and bikers should exercise extreme caution and follow reduced posted speed limits and flaggers’ instructions. Please adhere to the 35 or 45 miles per hour speed limits. Contact the public information team at 970-724-4724 or sh9kremmling@publicinfoteam.com with questions.
