CDOT to perform emergency bridge repair west of the US 160 and US 550 (Camino Del Rio) intersection
Motorists will encounter lane shifts and traffic delays on July 22 and July 23, 2022
DURANGO ― The Colorado Department of Transportation will be performing emergency bridge repair work on the US Highway 160 bridge located just south of the DoubleTree Hotel and just west of the US 160 and US 550 intersection in Durango. This emergency work will take place tomorrow, Friday, July 22, and possibly Saturday, July 23 from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Motorists will encounter both westbound and eastbound lane shifts and crews will attempt to keep traffic moving through the work zone. However, significant delays can be expected at the US 160 and US 550 intersection due to congestion caused by the limited lanes available. Travelers should allow themselves extra time. Motorists, as well as pedestrians, are asked to seek an alternate route, if possible. Motorists are urged to watch for workers and their equipment, slow down and drive with extreme caution.

And I can’t help but wonder just what they were doing most of the beginning of summer out there…on the bridge. If I remember correctly they were repaving it…my my, one would think the support system would have been attended to first….
Thanks for this update as we have to go to D’go on Saturday!
