From 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, US Highway 40 will be closed in both directions near the intersection of Lincoln Street in Craig for paving operations, according to a news release from Colorado Department of Transportation.

“This closure is necessary due to the size of the work areas and equipment needed to apply the asphalt,” the release stated. “The full closure will keep crews and traveling public safe during this phase of the project.”

There will be two detours in place, one for each direction of traffic.

Highway 40’s westbound traffic will be routed along First Street onto Colorado Highway 13, while drivers heading east can travel along Fourth Street and turn onto Bellaire Avenue to avoid the roadwork on the bridge.

Detour signs will be posted to direct traffic safely around the work area.

Working hours for the project are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
