Single Lane Traffic on US Highway 350 Due to Bridge Replacement Starts Jan. 31, 2023

Traffic switch 
US Highway 350 - UPDATE

Due to new weather predictions for snow accumulation, CDOT and its contracting partner, CapitalTezak JV will reschedule implementing the new traffic switch on US 350 from Friday, January 20 moving it to January 31, weather permitting. This will switch traffic to a signalized, single lane configuration at the bridge structure located at Mile Point (MP) 47.1 south of Timpas.

Motorists can expect shoulder closures and occasional lane closures to continue on US 350  between MP 51.7 and MP 47.1 for several weeks as crews work on the assembly of the next bridge structures. All construction schedules are weather and resource dependent.

This is one of nine bridge structures on US 350 that are being replaced as part of the $43 million bridge structure replacement project. Construction is anticipated to be complete on all structures in both regions by late 2024.

Region 2 Bridge Bundle Project Information

Colorado is one of the fastest growing states in the country, and with that growth comes strain on aging transportation systems that have significant consequences in the form of growing safety and mobility problems. The purpose of this project is to provide necessary improvements to 17 structures so motorists can be ensured that they are driving on more stable and up to date structures with life spans of 100 years.
 
The three rural highway corridors where structures are being replaced include:

  • Colorado Highway (CO) 9
  • US Highway 24
  • US Highway 350
The importance of US 350 Corridor (Plains Region)
  • Nine structures to be reconstructed between La Junta and Trinidad
  • Provides a connection between Interstate 25 (I-25) and US 50 (saving many miles for freight traffic)
  • Designated route for hazardous waste, gasoline, diesel and liquefied petroleum
  • Major access point to the US Army’s Piñon Canyon Maneuver Site
Construction completion of the Bridge Bundle $43 million project is slated for late 2024.
