HUERFANO COUNTY—Crews are currently working on roadway improvements to US Highway 160 and will continue on a regular schedule from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, throughout June. This marks a change to the original schedule for the US 160 widening project.
The extended construction days aim to accelerate the project in time for a week-long shutdown in early July for Independence Day week (July 1-9).
Expect lane shifts and lane closures throughout the work zone. Speed limits are reduced to 55 mph.
Work on this project consists of road widening and asphalt paving, signing, striping and construction of a new passing lane on US 160. The I-25 on- and off-ramps in Walsenburg will also be improved as part of this project.
The widening of the road and the construction of a new passing lane is meant for a safer driving experience. Tricon 2, LLC is the contractor for this $4.86 million project.
