      TWO NIGHT CLOSURES PLANNED

      RETAINING WALL WORK ON US 550 RED MOUNTAIN PASS

      OURAY COUNTY – Colorado Department of Transportation contractor
      Midwest Rockfall will require at least two night closures of US 550
      Red Mountain Pass for upcoming drainage pipe work. The drainage work
      is part of the project to repair two crib walls (retaining walls)
      under the southbound lane approximately 1.5 miles north of snow shed.
      The work will be completed by September 25, 2012.

      NIGHTTIME TRAVEL IMPACTS: On July 12, and likely July 17, the pass
      will be closed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. to allow crews to remove and
      replace two inlets (a maximum of six nights of closures are allowed
      but will likely not be needed). Following this work, another
      announcement will be sent to confirm whether any future nighttime
      closures are necessary.

      Regular travel impacts: Through September 25, motorists will
      encounter single-lane, alternating traffic between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.,
      Monday through Friday. There will be no weekend work. Motorists will
      also encounter periodic full traffic holds in both directions of up to
      15 minutes during work hours (while equipment is in the roadway).
      Please note, while these traffic holds will be limited to 15 minutes
      or less, motorists’ actual delays will exceed 15 minutes, as the
      traffic queues are cleared in each direction. Delay times will vary
      depending upon traffic volumes.

      For information on this project, the public may call Midwest Rockfall,
      Inc.’s Public Information Manager Filiberto Marquez, at (970)
      462-1529. (For information on other CDOT projects statewide, the
      public may log on towww.cotrip.org or call 511.) Better yet, sign up
