Saturday Update

6/4/22 Saturday 6:55 am

I don’t have a lot of info on the Bear Dance fire, but it was mapped late yesterday afternoon at 89 acres. Here is the latest map.

As always, as new information comes my way I will share it.

I don’t always share all of the non-winter information I get from CDOT, but this is a doozy. As if it is not enough of an experience to go to Walmart already…

CDOT to pave eastbound lanes of US 160 in front of Durango Walmart

 Motorists will encounter lane shifts and delays   

LA PLATA COUNTY ― The Colorado Department of Transportation will pave the eastbound lanes along a section of US Highway 160 in Durango next week. The paving crew will work between the High Bridge and Dominguez Drive, in front of Walmart. Work will take place Monday and Tuesday, June 6 and 7 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. No work will occur in the Dominguez Drive intersection, at the east access to Walmart and to Durango Motor Company.

Traffic Impacts 

Traffic will be kept flowing through the work zone with lane shifts. Motorists will be guided by cones, signs and flagging personnel. Drivers may encounter periodic traffic stops and delays. A speed reduction of 40 mph will be enforced. Motorists should expect delays when accessing US 160 from Highway 3. Motorists may consider the alternate business access of River Drive located at Home Depot. Motorists are urged to watch for workers and their equipment, slow down and drive with extreme caution. This work is weather permitting.

Know Before You Go

Travelers are urged to “know before you go.” Gather information about weather forecasts, anticipated travel impacts, and current road conditions prior to hitting the road. CDOT resources include:

There is not going to be a lot to talk about with the weather for a while. I hope I prepped everyone for this over the past couple (or so) of months. This pattern is clearly locked in on the models as it has been in the extended models for quite some time.  Here is the latest from the extended Euro model showing the total precipitation through the end of June.

As I have said, June is our driest month of the year. Watch what happens when I extend the totals out through July 17th.

The end of June through July looks very promising!
