[ARCHIVED] Telluride's Tuesday Traffic Issue Addressed -- CDOT Modifies Plans





Contact:    Susan Lilly, Public Information Officer   970-729-2028



June 20, 2017  -- (Telluride, CO) – The San Miguel County Sheriff’s Office was in communication with various CDOT (Colorado Department of Transportation) officials and engineers today regarding this morning’s major traffic delays on the Highway 145 corridor in and around Telluride and have been advised that a new plan is in place for the remainder of the work to be done.


Effective tomorrow (Wednesday), hours on the chip and seal project  (on Highway 145 from Ski Ranches to Society Turn) will be modified to begin at 9am and end at 4pm. Highway sweeping may occur around 6pm after most of the rush hour traffic has cleared.


CDOT told Deputies that changes will be made so that delays in that area will not exceed 15 minutes. Because multiple control zones may exist between the Mountain Village entrance and the Society round-about, it is possible for motorists to be delayed more than once.


CDOT plans on completing that section of Highway 145 by the end of the week and will then begin working at the top of Lizard Head pass and make their way back to the Ski Ranches area. That remaining work is expected to last until mid-July. 


Please drive with caution in the area to help keep crews and everyone safe. 


The San Miguel Sheriff’s Office, located in Telluride, Colorado and established in 1883, serves 7,800 residents and countless visitors across the 1,288 square miles of San Miguel County. Sheriff Bill Masters has been serving as the county’s elected Sheriff since 1980.
