Speed reduced in the work zone  


SW COLORADO ― The Colorado Department of Transportation will be working on US Highway (US) 550 between Montrose and Ridgway next week, Tuesday, April 17 through Friday, April 20. A maintenance crew will be paving the roadway just north of the Ridgway Reservoir, from mile points 113 to 115.


Motorists will encounter brief delays. Motorists should be prepared for stops and one-lane alternating traffic guided by flaggers and a pilot vehicle. The speed limit will be reduced to 40 MPH in the work zone. CDOT urges the traveling public to slow down and be aware of workers and equipment on the roadway. The work is expected to be completed by the end of the workday on Friday.
