Safety improvements underway for Highway 13

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

The Colorado Department of Transportation began a $7.4 million resurfacing project on Colorado Highway 13 from mile markers 79 to 88, near the intersection of U.S. Highway 40, according to a news release.

The first phase of the project will involve milling and paving the highway and should be wrapped up by the end of August. Additional work includes heavy repairs and guardrail improvements and will run from August through October.

Connell Resources, of Steamboat Springs, is the contractor for the project.

TRAVEL IMPACTS: Beginning Monday, flaggers are alternating one lane of traffic through the work zone between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. The speed limit is reduced through the work zone so CDOT reminds motorists to Slow for the Cone Zone. Motorists are also encouraged to review CDOT's lane closure reports online at http://www.coloradodot.info/travel/scheduled-lane-closures.html.
