Southwest & South-Central Colorado ― US 160 Wolf Creek Pass between Pagosa and South Fork will close tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. while the Colorado Department of Transportation performs winter maintenance operations. Westbound traffic will be stopped just west of the ski area at the pass summit (MP 167) and eastbound traffic will be stopped near Treasure Falls (MP 157). Do not attempt to bypass the closed gates. Maintenance operations will last for much of the morning, but the exact time of reopening the highway is not known.


My next update will likely be Thursday morning unless something comes up before then. Thanks for following and supporting the site!
