CONEJOS COUNTY — The Colorado Department of Transportation will install new guardrail on CO highway 15 just north of La Jara, beginning next week. The work will involve the replacement of old guardrail in need of replacement on a bridge structure near the intersection of CO 15 and US Highway 285.
The work is scheduled to take place over two weeks, with an anticipated completion date of July 24. TRAFFIC IMPACTS: Beginning Monday, July 13 through Friday, July 24, motorists on CO 15 (at MP 30) will encounter one-lane alternating traffic with lane shifts and brief stops controlled by a temporary traffic signal.
Travelers are urged to watch for workers and heavy equipment. Motorists are also advised that the temporary light signal and traffic control devices will remain in place overnight and through the weekend during the two-week project. Please note the work is weather dependent. KNOW BEFORE YOU GO Travelers are urged to “know before you go.”
